Download full report!

From 16 to 20 October in Quito, Ecuador, the EcoMobility Days gathered local representatives, change-makers from the public and the private sectors, and urban mobility enthusiasts.

In total, over 60 speakers from more than 25 countries exchanged practices, visions of the future of urban mobility and concrete tools and methodology during an intense 5-day program attended by over 250 participants.
The EcoMobility days were organized by the ICLEI EcoMobility Alliance, with support from partners such as FIA Foundation, EUROCLIMA and various other organizations working in the area of urban mobility. EcoMobility Days is a part of the technical workshop series of the EcoMobility Alliance and an effort to equip local governments to implement the New Urban Agenda, which was also being discussed at the UN’s Habitat III conference held during the same time in Quito, Ecuador.
The EcoMobility Days combined the main elements that the Alliance offers its members, supporting them in enhancing sustainable mobility, good practice exchanges, tools and methodology trainings and offering a space for high-level discussions on the future of urban mobility.

All throughout the five days, more than 15 cities across the world presented their efforts in terms of sustainable urban mobility. The great number of presentations represented the diversity of challenges and the solutions local governments intend to overcome these challenges.
