A paradigm shift focusing on the concepts of mobility and sustainable mobility started to be shaped a few decades ago as an alternative to the traditional planning views. In line with this the UN defined its Sustainable Development Goal 11 "Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable". This course introduces some of the key concepts of sustainable urban mobility, such as indicators-based planning and resilient mobility. The contents include visions of sustainable urban mobility, new approaches to integrated land-use and transportation modeling and the role played by walking and cycling as transportation modes in urban areas.
