SUNRISE: Inspiring other neighbourhoods in Europe

  • Posted On: November 15, 2019

With the aim of inspiring, informing, and activating neighbourhoods beyond the project’s partnership, the SUNRISE project recently organised the second SUNRISE Take-Up Cities (TUC) workshop. Project partners gathered on the 6-7 November in Zugló-Törökőr, the SUNRISE neighbourhood in Budapest to engage in a two days exchange of ideas.

Stakeholders working in the neighborhoods: Usera (Madrid), Bruce Grove (London), United Nations (Kruševac), Šabac (Trkalište), Detelinara (Novi sad), Southwark (London), Heraklion (Crete) and Padre Cruz (Lisbon)​ had the opportunity to present the mobility challenges in the local areas and to learn from the SUNRISE experience on using a co-creation approach to involve citizens in the mobility planning.

Project partners from TU Vienna, Ruprecht Consultancy, Edinburgh Napier University ​interacted with participants bringing some insights from the SUNRISE project and presented to them the project’s methods and tools to engage communities in the different phases of the co-creation process. Cities involved in SUNRISE such as Bremen and Budapest had also the chance to share with the TUC the lessons learnt after more than two years of the project implementation.

Topics such as shared mobility, public space, urban freight logistics, active modes, and equity and gender were discussed among the participants who related the themes to the experiences in the different neighbourhoods.
