The EcoMobility World Festival 2017 in Kaohsiung

NEW LOGO - EMWF

In October 2017, the Kaohisung City hosted the 3rd EcoMobility World Festival. The Festival was a live demonstration of how cities could take a bold step to create a forward-thinking urban transportation culture through ecomobility. The historical Hamasen neighborhood was transformed into a dedicated space for ecomobile modes of transport such as walking, cycling, public transport, shared vehicles,and light electric vehicles.

About the festival

EcoMobility Congress
Livable. Shared. Intelligent.
2-4 October 2017

During the EcoMobility World Festival, the fourth EcoMobility World Congress 2017 was held from 2 to 4 October 2017 in Kaohsiung. The EcoMobility Congress series enabled 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. Our Congress theme for this year was: Livable, Shared, and Intelligent. 

This year, at the Congress, we welcomed more than 1,200 registered participants, including local governments, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, businesses, media and civil society. Together with the Festival, the Congress aimed to build and showcase a narrative that livable cities are not car-centric, but rather through an integrated mode of mobility.

The Kaohsiung Strategies for the Future of Urban Mobility were adopted 4 October at the closing plenary of the EcoMobility World Congress 2017 in Kaohsiung.

Our cities are experiencing unprecedented changes in transportation that are driven by social, economic and technical trends. As city leaders, it is our responsibility to guide these changes to ensure that accessible, connected, affordable, safe, and environmentally friendly mobility options are being integrated into our existing and future communities.

The Kaohsiung Strategies for the Future of Urban Mobility are one of the legacies of the Kaohsiung EcoMobility World Festival and inspire local governments to transform their transportation systems and mobility patterns towards more sustainable, low-carbon and people-centered models that reduce automobile dependency.

The Kaohsiung Strategies, launched 4 October at the EcoMobility World Congress in Kaohsiung, were shared at the UN Climate Conference COP 23 in Bonn in November 2017, bringing a strong message on sustainable urban mobility to the international stage. They also serve as a call to action to apply the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda to local mobility policies.

The Kaohsiung Strategies are based on the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities.
