Dar es Salaam

Each year, the winning city hosts MOBILIZE, ITDP’s sustainable transport summit, held in cooperation with the Volvo Research and Education Foundations (VREF). MOBILIZE spotlights the achievements of the winning city and gives transport professionals and researchers from around the world the opportunity to experience the city as a learning lab with lessons on how to get world class projects implemented. Together, the STA and MOBILIZE highlight an elite group of international cities that can inspire and catalyze more cities around the world to implement transport solutions of their own.

MOBILIZE Dar es Salaam will be held in 2018.  More details to be announced soon.
