MOBILIZE is the annual sustainable transport summit of the Institute for Transportation and Development (ITDP), which brings together urban transport and development practitioners alongside world-class researchers to celebrate best practices and accelerate implementation of sustainable transport projects.
Each year, ITDP and the Sustainable Transport Award Committee select a city that has implemented innovative sustainable transportation projects in the preceding year. These strategies improve mobility for all residents, reduce transportation greenhouse and air pollution emissions, and improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians. This year, the winning city and host is Fortaleza.
The summit gives transport professionals and researchers from around the world an opportunity to experience the winning city as a learning lab with lessons on how to get world class projects implemented. Interaction between researchers and practitioners fosters greater global resource allocation toward the goals of making streets, transport systems, and cities the best possible places for people.
Speaker sessions include:
- Inclusive street design: the key to great cities
- Keeping the rapid in bus rapid transit
- From Seattle to Shenzhen: planning dockless bikeshare that works for cities
