What is best practice, what are the barriers in national/federal governance for walking and cycling, the primer sustainable active mobility modes? Good infrastructure and services for pedestrians and cyclists are an essential part of sustainable mobility for all – worldwide.
Walking and cycling are reflected well in the New Urban Agenda as adopted at the Habitat III conference by the UN in Quito in 2016. Good conditions for walking and cycling are essential for sustainable mobility for all (see the World Bank Project Sum4all). The EU is developing currently an Urban Agenda for the EU, where urban mobility is one of the themes.
Five Experts from five different countries (United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands) share their knowledge, debate and discuss with the audience about good national/federal governance for sustainable active mobility. All speakers are involved in the international exchange of knowledge about what works best in national policies and funding to promote walking and cycling.
