Public transport is at a turning point. In order to meet rising mobility and urban challenges, UITP and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) have joined forces to launch a high-level platform for local and regional leaders to collaborate in building more accessible, efficient and liveable cities.
Local and regional leaders have long been aware of our great responsibility to create better cities and to improve the lives of the people who live in them. The New Urban Agenda, the 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an opportunity for to demonstrate that it is in cities, regions and territories where development, equality, prosperity and sustainability must become tangible throughout different sectors, for example mobility.
The Mobility Champions Community is the first global platform of city leaders taking concrete action and collaborating to transform urban mobility.
It is a common agreement between Mayors, Ministers and other public sector leaders, together with private stakeholders, to share their insights and good practices on creating and implementing ambitious urban mobility projects.
The Mobility Champions Community builds on the capacity and hands-on experience of UCLG and UITP Members. UCLG and UITP support the Mobility Champions Community by adopting a holistic approach linking urban mobility with digital, social, environmental and economic aspects and ideas.
