Declarations on ecomobility in cities
There are currently three declarations that have been output of the past EcoMobility World Congresses where representing cities demonstrated their commitments to a sustainable urban future.
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 provide a guide for city leaders to shape the future of urban transport in their communities, and ensure safe, clean, affordable, accessible, environmentally-friendly, intelligent and connected mobility options and transport systems for their residents.
The Kaohsiung Strategies are based on the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities.
Available in 6 different languages including English, Chinese, German, Spanish, French and Korean.
