Healthy, inexpensive, fast, environmentally friendly – there are numerous reasons why bicycles rank among the best means of transport. Many cities have recognized the advantages of active mobility and are committed to the targeted promotion of cycling and innovative cycling projects. However, Europe is not the only place where good examples exist: a large number of international cycling projects are successful and proof of great commitment and creative problem-solving approaches. We will present some of these approaches – for example cycling concepts broadly supported by publicity campaigns in Mexico City, strategies for funding cycling measures in Bogota, the launch of cycle hire schemes in Kenya and the construction of tourism cycle superhighways in China.
The event is organised by the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI), by which the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development supports the international transformation of the transport system: for example by means of continuing training measures and the sharing of experience as well as by funding innovative pilot projects in developing and emerging countries.
