Sustainable Transport Award
The Sustainable Transport Award recognizes profound leadership, vision, and achievement in sustainable transportation and urban livability. Established in 2005, the Sustainable Transport Award has been given annually to a city that has implemented innovative sustainable transportation projects in the preceding year. These strategies improve mobility for all residents, reduce transportation greenhouse and air pollution emissions, and improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians. Finalists are selected by an international committee of development experts and organizations working on sustainable transport.
The winning city will host MOBILIZE, the following June 2017, ITDPs sustainable transport summit, supported by 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 an 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.
