Testimonies from our past Festivals


  • Mpho Parks Tau, Executive Mayor of Johannesburg
    “The EcoMobility Festival was never about achieving miraculous achievements overnight, but to point out compelling global reasons and ways for citizens to contribute to decongestion in our urban course”
    Mpho Parks Tau, Executive Mayor of Johannesburg
  • Iván De la Lanza, Director of Design, Culture and Bicycle Infrastructure, Mexico City, MX
    “Johannesburg, Mexico City, and many other cities around the world, have started a mobility revolution, who transform not only the cities by themselves but also brings associated benefits like equity, democracy, human scale, community engagement, healthier, safer streets for children and sustainable solutions to urgent climate change matters.”
    Iván De la Lanza, Director of Design, Culture and Bicycle Infrastructure, Mexico City, MX
  • Yeom Tae-Young, Mayor of Suwon, where the first EcoMobility Festival took place in 2013.

  • Ismail Vadi, Member of the Executive Council for Roads and Transport of Gauteng Provincial Government, South Africa
    We have no choice. If you want to change and be more efficient, better organized in life and have more quality time with your family, then you have to look at either public transport or other modes of non-motorized transport!
    Ismail Vadi, Member of the Executive Council for Roads and Transport of Gauteng Provincial Government, South Africa
  • David Makhura, Premier of Gauteng Province.
    “The EcoMobility Festival is the moment to showcase alternative modes of transport. Social integration and social cohesion are at the centre of that. We need to build our cities and human settlements in a way that it easily promotes people interacting, walking and cycling”
    David Makhura, Premier of Gauteng Province.
  • Kadri Nassiep, CEO SANEDI
    “We are not only taking people out of their comfort zone, we are changing the paradigm.”
    Kadri Nassiep, CEO SANEDI
  • Ramesh, used to be a runner and started cycling recently
    Motorists should accept that there is a place for cyclists and pedestrians, they must accept it. And cyclists need to take charge of the roads and go out.

  • Ross Douglas, CEO, Autonomy, FR
    “The idea of a festival to let urbanites experience new ways of commuting is exactly what the city needed as there is an audience looking for solutions and as research has shown when people experience new mobility solutions by test riding an e-bike they are far more likely to change behavior than when they only read about it.”
    Ross Douglas, CEO, Autonomy, FR
  • Dipuo Peters, Minister of Transport South Africa
    “Our legs are the best mode of transport. We should not forget to use them.”
    Dipuo Peters, Minister of Transport South Africa

    David Makhura, Premier of Gauteng
