{International Seminar Sustainable Transport Planning - a Modern Perspective for the Solution of Transport Problems in Big Cities and Agglomerations}

On October 12-13 the international seminar “Sustainable Transport Planning - a Modern Perspective for the Solution of Transport Problems in Big Cities and Agglomerations” was held in Vladivostok. The seminar was attended by dozens of Russian and foreign participants, including representatives of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, Federal Transport Inspectorate (Rostransnadzor), JSC “NIIAT”, Rosavtotrans, scientific organizations of Russia, Austria, Korea, Moldova, administrations of the Russian Federation subjects, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. 

The event was held under the auspices of the Transport, Environment and Health Pan-European Programme - Transport, Environment and Health Pan-European Programme Relay (THE PEP Relay) and in the framework of the Federal Targeted Programme "Increase of traffic safety in 2013-2020 years".

THE PEP has been developed on the initiative of ministers of transport, environment and health of a number of states and is implemented under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Program’s objective is to cooperate and encourage working together experts from the spheres of transport, health, environmental protection and urban planning in order to develop strategies for sustainable development and transport operation.

The seminar was held under 3 sessions:

  1. Implementation of integrated solutions for ensuring of efficient and safe functioning of urban transport systems, including solutions in the field of development of cycling and other non-motorized kinds of transport
  2. State policy in the field of transport planning: role of state authorities insuring “sustainable mobility in cities”
  3. Modern approaches to development of complex transport schemes of cities and agglomerations: examples of good practice.

Green Mobility Project was presented within the session “Modern approaches to development of complex transport schemes of cities and agglomerations: examples of good practice”.  

It was also held an interactive session – business game “Metropolis. Transport. Planning” that was attended by students and lecturers of Far Eastern Federal University. The method of "active interactivity" allowed erasing the line between speakers and the audience, and outdated lecture format – brought it by the level of the passions to a television talk show.

Discussion between experts from the spheres of transport, health, environmental protection and urban planning from around the world will contribute to development of strategies for sustainable development and transport operation in order to ensure comfort and mobility for people living in big cities.
