Cities for Mobility
"Cities for Mobility" is a global city network tackling questions related to urban transport. The network is coordinated by the State Capital Stuttgart, and promotes transnational cooperation between city councils, transport firms, the economy, science and civil society, with the aim of promoting the establishment of sustainable, efficient and future-proofed transport systems in the member cities. The broad range of topics covered by the Network ranges from promotion of the use of bicycles as a means of public transport to the use of new methods of propulsion in order to reduce emissions.
To date, 300 cities, companies and NGOs from over 38 cities in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia are involved in the network.
A key component of "Cities for Mobility" is not only an intensive and ongoing exchange of knowledge and experience between the members and partners, but also the development of innovative projects, which respond to specific transport problems raised by cities around the world. Stuttgart is able to build on its broad experience and established expertise in the field of international cooperation at community level, and on a regional network of leading companies in the car industry, plus reputable educational and research institutes, which is internationally quite unique. Thanks to its successful cooperation with these companies and scientific institutions, which have global links, Stuttgart has successfully managed to become the leading international centre of competence for all questions related to mobility. In "Cities for Mobility", Stuttgart intends to extend its successful status internationally and to establish new contacts with representatives of local government, the economy, science and civil society.
