Declarations on ecomobility in cities

There are currently three declarations that have been output of the past EcoMobility World Congresses where representing cities demonstrated their commitments to a sustainable urban future.

The Kaohsiung Strategies for the Future of Urban Mobility

The Kaohsiung Strategies for the Future of Urban Mobility are one of the legacies of the Kaohsiung EcoMobility World Festival and inspire local governments to transform their transportation systems and mobility patterns towards more sustainable, low-carbon and people-centered models that reduce automobile dependency.

The Kaohsiung Strategies provide a guide for city leaders to shape the future of urban transport in their communities, and ensure safe, clean, affordable, accessible, environmentally-friendly, intelligent and connected mobility options and transport systems for their residents.

The Kaohsiung Strategies are based on the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities.

Available in 6 different languages including English, Chinese, German, Spanish, French and Korean.

The Johannesburg Declaration on Ecomobility in Cities

The Johannesburg Declaration on Ecomobility in Cities is one of the outcomes of the second EcoMobility World Festival 2015, which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa.

It has been developed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the City of Johannesburg and has received valuable input from partners and experts, in particular from SLoCaT.

This Declaration was first endorsed by city leaders and experts who convened in Johannesburg, South Africa, in October 2015 for the EcoMobility Dialogues.

On the occasion of the EcoMobility World Festival 2013 and upon invitation of the Mayor of Suwon and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, mayors, city planners and mobility experts convened in Suwon, South Korea, in September 2013 for the second EcoMobility 2013 Congress. Among these were many representatives from the EcoMobility Alliance.

As an output of the congress and the festival the Suwon EcoMobility Impulse was introduced to the participants and the dignitaries. The purpose of the Suwon 2013 EcoMobility Impulse was to provide guiding thoughts, principles, examples and starting points for concrete improvements in urban planning & development, be it for existing municipalities or new towns, towards the greening of mobility in our cities worldwide.

ICLEI endorsed declarations

Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities

The pace of technology-driven innovation from the private sector in shared transportation services, vehicles, and networks is rapid, accelerating, and filled with opportunity. At the same time, city streets are a finite and scarce resource.

These principles, produced by a working group of international NGOs, are designed to guide urban decision-makers and stakeholders toward the best outcomes for all.

Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for E-mobility

The Polish Presidency of COP24 proposes to make electromobility one of the leading topics of the Conference of the Parties. The tool to achieve this goal is the presentation of the Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for Electromobility, prepared by Poland and the United Kingdom.

It provides an impetus to ensure that all people can live in clean, citizen and environmentally friendly cities by making efforts to promote electromobility and clean transport. It stimulates legal, economic, social and cultural conditions for the development of electromobility, sustainable patterns and innovation in transport, with the ultimate effect of reducing emissions in this sector and improving the health of the planet’s population.
