UCLG, a lead partner of the SUM Bilbao Congress


SUM Bilbao will take place on 6-7 October 2021. A major international event in which institutions, local and regional governments, and companies will discuss strategic aspects, exchange experiences and solutions and work together to build the mobility of the future with sustainability as key driver.

UCLG is a lead partner of the SUM Bilbao congress and will continue to advocate for the maintenance and strengthening of local public service provision, including key services such as mobility and public transport, during and beyond the recovery.

The crises stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted who and what we were leaving behind and public transport is an integral part of local public services working non-stop to ensure that all people have access to essential services and access to opportunity. During SUM Bilbao, local and regional governments and their associations will be participating in various thematic sessions of the congress ensuring that the local perspective drives the mobility of tomorrow.
