Third REFORM Newsletter 
Dear readers,

Welcome to the third issue of our REFORM newsletter! 

After one year and a half of activities, the INTERREG Europe project REFORM is happy to share with you its latest developments.
Among the main achievements, the partners have published a collection of Good Practices on urban mobility and sustainable urban mobility planning. The project has also been active at various events over the last six months. The REFORM regions and cities discussed their Good Practices in a dedicated workshop (Nicosia) and the partners also represented REFORM at major events, including the European SUMP Conference (Nicosia) or the Italian national SUMP Conference (Bologna). Finally, don't miss in this issue the Region in the spotlight of this issue: Emilia-Romagna.

The REFORM partners wish you a good summer 2018!
