EcoMobility Initiatives and Projects
EcoMobility World Festival and Congress
The EcoMobility World Festival (EMWF) is a month-long presentation of an innovative and forward thinking urban transportation culture in real time and real neighborhood. The EcoMobility World Congress series is an integral element to the EMWF . It is a global forum for local governments and leading thought leaders in the sustainable mobility field.
The EcoMobility Days is a part of the technical workshop series of the EcoMobility Alliance. The EcoMobility Days combines 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.
Since 2017, ICLEI pioneered the EcoLogistics initiative as urban freight plays a critical role in sustainable urban mobility. As an under-investigated field, ICLEI seeks to highlight and demonstrate the co-benefits of EcoLogistics through demonstration projects and capacity building efforts to guide national and local governments to support low carbon urban freight actions.
The EcoMobility SHIFT is a methodology designed for cities to measure the performance in urban mobility and make informed decisions based on the areas that need improvement. The SHIFT methodology supports cities in creating and strengthening the mobility plans of cities and supports cities in developing action plans to implement integrated urban mobility.
Funded by the Hewlett Foundation, this project (2017- 2019) aims to promote climate- and people-friendly mobility (EcoMobility). To materialize, the approach is by working with six selected project cities from China, India and Uganda through three intervention points: (1) performance measurement with EcoMobility SHIFT; (2) capacity building; and (3) global dissemination.
Funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through its International Climate Initiative (IKI) program, theEcoLogistics project (2017 – 2021) involves nine cities in Argentina, Colombia, and India. The project will focus on enhancing capacities, strategies, and policies to promote low carbon urban freight through local action and national support.
The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI) enables leaders in developing countries and emerging economies to create sustainable urban mobility. With this initiative, the new project will aim at creating a network of mobility experts; encouraging innovative cities in Sub-Saharan Africa to organize mobility weeks; and further contributing to the next Global Urban Mobility Challenge.
