EcoMobility World Congress 2017

Liveable, Shared, Intelligent


The EcoMobility Congress series enables international actors, united by a shared interest in sustainable transportation, to come together to share good practices and spark synergies in a setting that promotes creative collaboration, local initiatives and the EcoMobility agenda

A series of workshops, dialogues and sessions on the topic of “shared mobility” will bring together thought leaders, decision makers and implementers of innovative forms of sustainable urban mobility to shape the future of urban mobility.

Previous EcoMobility World Congresses


The EcoMobility Dialogues explored ways to reduce the dominance of private automobiles in cities and to build an urban transport system that meets the needs of residents while minimizing energy consumption, emissions, material use and space requirements. The topics of the three dialogues were:

  • Reshaping cities for EcoMobility: Strategies and tactics
  • Achieving and enabling EcoMobility: New and shared forms of mobility
  • Making the commuting decisions safe, sustainable and popular

The Congress highlighted the importance of EcoMobility from a range of perspectives, including local leadership, social inclusion, health, future generations, and practical applications. The Congress underscored EcoMobility as an active concept – something to be applied and developed and shared. The Congress emphasized the integration, development, and promotion of active modes such as walking, cycling, wheeling, public transport and shared transport systems.

Participants at the first Alliance workshop held in Changwon discussed the importance of people-friendly urban spaces. The workshop concluded that urban spaces can be safe and attractive when they are designed for people rather than automobiles. Changwon City served as the perfect host after converting some of its urban areas for exclusive pedestrian use and also dedicating a disused railroad for cycling.
