ENDURANCE will assist cities and regions with developing SUMPs by facilitating networking, mutual learning and sharing of experience and best practise across countries. The project will provide this facilitation by building 25 national networks and an overarching European network organisation.
ENDURANCE aims to support the policies of the EU by closing a large gap, described in many reports: the major success factors for successful SUMP implementation are peer-to-peer contacts and a national support policy – and both are structurally lacking in almost all EU countries.
Objectives during the project:
Establish enduring national SUMP networks in all EU countries and Norway
Establish an enduring and integrated European SUMP audit, training and policy transfer network
Activate 250 cities in Europe to engage in SUMP and SUMP implementation
Raise awareness about SUMP and its benefits at national and European level institutions
