Event description

Description

Smooth transportation is a major challenge, but nonetheless foundational for a liveable city. That is the reason why more and more cities have looked to Denmark and seen how cycling can be a practical, everyday means of transport, which everybody from children to grannies uses. In this seminar, we look at how future cities might enable people to travel even more actively by bike, how this can help improve traffic safety, attract tourists and create healthy, people-friendly environments that can reduce congestion, pollution and carbon emission as well as help cities cope with growing populations and workforces.
