Win a trip to EcoMobility World Festival in Korea!
The EcoMobility World Festival, organized though collaboration between the City of Suwon, Republic of South Korea, ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, and UN-Habitat, is taking place in Suwon from 1 to 30 September 2013.
This “Festival” in reality is a bold experiment involving the real inhabitants of a real city. For one month the residents of Haenggungdong neighborhood in Suwon will adopt an eco-mobile lifestyle to experience how eco-mobility can influence their lives positively.
The Festival will show how eco-mobility i.e., the integrated promotion of walking, cycling, electric cars and other alternatives to vehicles that run on fossil fuels can provide innovative, environmentally friendly transport options to all of a neighbourhood’s residents irrespective of age, gender or physical capability.
The Festival will showcase the latest eco-mobile technologies, applying them in a real city environment. It is expected to bring together policy makers, city planners and experts from across the world, gathered to see how one neighborhood can make the change from using private petrol based cars to eco-mobile modes of transport. At a press conference held during the 24th UN-Habitat Governing Council in April 2013, Dr. Joan Clos the UN-Habitat Executive Director said of the Festival: “This is a natural experiment where people can see one of the possible alternatives to urban life in the future”.
