MobiliseYourCity member cities and countries across the world are taking action and demonstrating their commitment to transforming transport. On 25th June 2021, experts, practitioners, financing institutions and decision-makers will come together during the MobiliseYourCity Global Forum to provide answers to key challenges faced by cities on the way to sustainable mobility. They will discuss new opportunities for collaboration and some of the sector’s most important issues as MobiliseYourCity steps up its efforts to shape low-carbon mobility systems that contribute to efficient, safe and just cities.
For the first time, MobiliseYourCity will bring together all its partners in one single event which will include high-level panel discussions as well as hands-on trainings on multiple subjects related to sustainable mobility.
The conference part of the day will be opened by a panel with high-level representatives of the governments of Germany, France and the EU discussing how the lessons of five years of successful implementation can be rapidly scaled to meet the global challenges of the moment. Speakers from around the world will then address topics ranging from financing sustainable urban mobility to using digital technologies to ensure a sustainable and just transition in urban mobility or accompanying institutional change beyond infrastructure development in roundtables and further panel discussions.
To equip cities to take concrete actions, trainings will be offered before and after the conference to accommodate participants from all time zones. Participants will be offered training on our methodical highlight, the Emissions Calculator, and a webinar on digital solutions for paratransit integration and professionalisation with testimonies from pioneering cities.
Building up to COP26, the MobiliseYourCity Global Forum will take place on the final day of the 4th Transport and Climate Change Conference Week (21-25 June 2021) organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Thanks to a combination of face-to-face and online formats, the Transport and Climate Change Week will allow for participation from across the globe.
