The CHUMS Take-up Seminar
Find out how the event unfolded
Our “Take-up” seminar was dedicated to the innovative CHUMS approach, and focused on the three techniques employed with the aim to gain the best results from selected sites across Europe: Carpool Week, Mobility Jackpot, and Personalised Travel Planning (PTP). It attracted representatives from 20 cities from outside of the consortium. The Network continues to grow and invites other cities to join and make use of our experience and free resources.
The keynote address was delivered by Ali Clabburn, Managing Director of Liftshare, speaking about sharing, barriers Liftshare have encountered, and how these hurdles were overcome. Ali thinks that the ‘sharing revolution’ will be bigger than the industrial revolution and offered some inspiring concepts and advice when he kicked off the seminar. Ali also encourage us all to increase public “awareness of spareness” to make better use of existing capacity notably spare car seats at rush hour.
The CHUMS project partners presented their experiences in each site, from setting up a new car scheme and supporting software, to the selection process of sites, results of actions, barriers and solutions or how PTPs were delivered in different parts of Europe.
