The 8th International Congress Cities for Mobility was hosted by the city of Stuttgart between 19 and 21 June 2016 and it could obviously not take place without GPSM’s participation. The event provided a good opportunity for our network to get in touch with both the representatives of a wide range of cities and municipalities from all over the world and the mobility-related businesses. In a series of presentations modern sustainable solutions and their implementation strategies – with a particular focus on cycling – were presented by some successful cities (e.g. Utrecht and Vienna). A more detailed insight in some specific questions regarding urban mobility transformation was offered in the workshops. In particular, the session delivered by Mr Manfred Breithaupt (GIZ SUTP) and Mr Santhosh Kodukula (ICLEI) underlined and explained the links between urban planning and sustainable mobility solutions as well as the crucial importance of proper goal-setting and implementation plans for successful delivery of sustainable urban mobility projects.
