The approaches to sustainable urban mobility planning vary quite widely throughout Europe. The Baltic Sea Region Competence Centre on SUMP brings together the knowledge and good examples of sustainable urban mobility planning from the countries around the Baltic Sea.
The Good Examples database includes examples of complete plans that can be considered as SUMPs as well as examples of different elements of the mobility planning process that are relevant for SUMPs. Both, cities with a lot of experience with integrated planning approaches and cities initiating the SUMP process can learn from the examples.
The mobility plan in Luleå is a good example of how goals regarding sustainable mobility can be integrated into the general city vision.
The EKOLIITU plan was among the first plans in Finland to integrate the sustainable mobility perspective into traditional traffic safety plans. The plan promotes a safer, healthier and a more sustainable mobility in the Hämeenlinna region consisting of three municipalities in southern Finland.

The City Council of Lund embraced the first traffic strategy LundaMaTs in 1999. In 2006, the strategy was updated and is now called LundaMaTs II. LundaMaTs II is an ambitious and long term strategy with goals set for 2030.
The integration of mobility management with land-use planning in local authorities has a large potential to influence both mode choice and travel demand. Twelve municipalities in Sweden have for three years (2012-2014) participated in a network established by the Swedish Energy Agency, to analyze, implement and evaluate such solutions.
