Join ITDP for the final session of the Cycling Cities Stories webinar series this year where we will celebrate the second anniversary of the Cycling Cities campaign. In this session, we will focus on the breadth of cities around the world committed to elevating cycling, and how campaigns like Cycling Cities are pushing for action from the local to the international level.
Representatives from Cycling Cities cohort cities will join in conversation to share how they have worked to scale their commitments and investments in cycling over the past two years. Celebrate the progress these and other cities are making by positioning cycling as a key transport, health, and climate solution.
This event will feature live interpretations in Portuguese and Spanish.
