In June 2013, city and traffic planners, NGOs, researchers and other cycle experts from around the world will gather at Velo-city 2013 in Vienna. Of course, the Cycling Embassy of Denmark will also be on the spot. Come and meet us at our exhibit and exchange knowledge with us.
By Mai-Britt Kristensen, Coordinator, Cycling Embassy of Denmark
The world’s first cycling embassy
The Cycling Embassy of Denmark (CED) is the world’s first cycling embassy, currently counting 25 members (municipalities, private companies, NGOs, etc.). Our mission is to make Denmark the world’s leading cycling country and the primary source when it comes to knowledge, dialogue, and innovation in the field of cycling.
Cities from Chicago to Seoul are working to increase cycling, and their administrations and NGO’s look to Denmark and other countries where the cycling modal share is high for inspiration. As a result, the CED is increasingly organising master classes, excursions, and courses for foreign visitors.
Where can I meet the CED?
Come meet us at our exhibition stand (no. 2.02.) and have a chat in our lounge area. Special Meet Today’s Speakers events will take place during the last coffee break each day of the conference.
Here, you can discuss the topics of some of the CED members’ many presentations in further detail. See the list of CED participants, speakers and their presentations below.
