SUM Bilbao 19 is the first edition of an international event which aims to lead a global reflection on the future of mobility and its impact on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in the cities of the 21st century.

More than 40 speakers are expected to participate, who will address the main strategic aspects for the construction and consolidation of sustainable urban mobility systems, around three thematic axes: public policies, technology and innovation, and opportunities for development.

SUM Bilbao 2019 is jointly organized by the City Council of Bilbao, an international benchmark in urban transformation processes, and Petronor, a local energy company committed to the economic and social development of Basque Country. Both stakeholders are aware of the need for addressing the most urgent and concerning global issues about mobility, as well as its opportunities.

The event will bring together leading international experts from different sectors related to cities and urban mobility: local governments, international organizations, private companies, start-ups, technological centres and universities.

In addition to the exchange of knowledge and experiences, the main outcome of this meeting will be the signing of the “Bilbao Declaration”, an agreement that builds bridges between current mobility policies and practices and sets out the path towards models aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030.

It will take place at the Euskalduna Conference Centre in the city of Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain on 20 and 21 February 2019.
