About the EcoMobility World Festival
The EcoMobility World Festival concept was initiated by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability.
The EcoMobility World Festival is a month-long presentation of an innovative and forward thinking urban transportation culture. It is organized as a community-based mise-en-scène, during which one neighbourhood is temporarily converted into an “ecomobile neighbourhood” to present a real-life vision of car-free urban living for the future. The neighborhood will turn car-free and its community will experience an ecomobile environment and lifestyle for one month, a once-in-a life time opportunity to explore choices by living through a different scenario. The project is framed as a Festival so that it is perceived as fun for all people involved.
About the EcoMobility World Congress
ICLEI’s EcoMobility World Congress series was launched in October 2011, Changwon, Republic of Korea, to establish a global forum on sustainable mobility for local governments and their partners. It is an integral element to the EcoMobility World Festival to attract international experts to the Festival for them to witness the unique experiment and to discuss and share their experiences and opinions on car-free development.
