Suwon Congress concludes with mayors’ commitment to humanizing urban EcoMobility

Suwon, South Korea - Giving public spaces back to citizens and providing them with green, active and integrated ecomobile transport options are the main message drawn at the EcoMobility 2013 Suwon Congress.

Set in Suwon, South Korea, the congress opened the month-long EcoMobility World Festival – a unique real-time social experiment where citizens move away from cars and realize the possibility of living and travelling green in their neighborhoods. The event was jointly organized by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, the city of Suwon and UN-Habitat.

Drawing 500 participants from 40 countries representing 66 local governments, the congress is followed by a series of EcoMobility World Festival and cultural activities. The outcomes of the congress will be captured in the Suwon 2013 EcoMobility Impulse, a document to be released shortly after the congress. Interested groups and individuals are invited to submit their suggestions and comments to ecomobility2013(at)iclei.org
