TUMI Network of High Ambition Leaders Kick-off Wokshop

27-28 November 2018 – Tshwane, South Africa

ICLEI and GIZ have invited 20 cities from the African continent to participate in a 2-day kick-off event on the TUMI Network of High Ambition Leaders in Tshwane, South Africa from 27-28 November 2018. This year, 6 out of the 10 cities that won the international TUMI Challenge were from the African continent. The Dialogue will bring together Africa’s TUMI Network of High Ambition Leaders for the first time, along with representatives of other African cities who are interested in EcoMobility to share ideas and promote greater collaboration for sustainable transport on the continent.

During the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to share what their cities are doing to advance EcoMobility, to network with other African cities working on similar projects, and to learn from successful projects on the continent. Experts from our host city, Tshwane, will share their experiences of setting up rail, BRT, bike sharing and other modes of mobility, and participants will have opportunities to experience the city’s integrated transport system during planned excursions.
