The EcoMobility Congress will take a new format and title for its third edition in Johannesburg (South Africa). The EcoMobility Congress will be called the EcoMobility Dialogues and will be held from the 7 – 9 October 2015, concurrent with the second EcoMobility World Festival.
The EcoMobility Dialogues will attract thought leaders, experts, practitioners, academia and city leaders to discuss specific challenges, obstacles and ways out of the urban mobility crisis cities around the world face. It will form an integral part of the EcoMobility World Festival – a unique month long demonstration of an urban car-free lifestyle.
During the Dialogues, attention will be placed on the transport and climate change debate. Supported by expert groups from the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT) and the Bridging the Gap (BtG) initiative, the outcomes of these dialogues will form an input for further discussions at the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP21) to be held on 30 November to 11 December in Paris, France.
The 2nd EcoMobility Congress, held in Suwon in September 2013, attracted over 600 participants of whom 145 hailed from developing countries and from over 50 local governments
