More biking in small and medium sized towns of Central and Eastern Europe by 2020 (mobile2020)


The main aims
of project mobile2020 is to support and promote cycling in small and medium sized cities in 11 Central and Eastern European countries. During project implementation key stakeholders and responsible organizations had been informed about various issues which help to develop cycling friendly conditions in cities.

 To change the inhabitants’ behaviour on municipal level it is necessary to encourage local planners and decision makers to improve planning proceedings and make proper investments. It is important to translate and adapt to the local conditions and need the existing guidelines and best practice examples. That will help to reach a wider audience of cities inhabitants.

Target groups:
 • national multipliers
• planners in the municipal administration
 • decision makers, ministries
 • energy agencies, unions of cities,
 • municipalities
• interest groups and NGOs.
