About the Webinar

Fortaleza, Brazil transformed its urban mobility during a time of economic recession through the implementation of low cost and high impact projects. The transition from a car- to people-centric paradigm is based on three key factors: strong political support, highly qualified technical staff and data-based policies towards the promotion of public transport, cycling, and walking. This webinar presented a broader context of Fortaleza and sustainable transport projects that resulted in a safer and people-friendly city, and conclude with lessons learned and transferable policies.

Fortaleza is the winner of the 2019 Sustainable Transport Award and will host MOBILIZE this June. MOBILIZE will showcase best practices and lessons in sustainable mobility to an international group of city practitioners and researchers, engaging Fortaleza as a learning laboratory.
