Velo-city is the world’s largest cycle-planning conference. Initially established as a European bicycle planning conference in 1980, the 2010 meeting held in Copenhagen, Denmark brought the international bicycle community together for the first time. Velo-city Global 2010 gathered all those involved in policy, promotion and provision for bicycles.
As the conference was the first ever in the Velo-city series on a global level, it has been of highest priority to include representatives from Africa, Asia and Latin America, where problems related to road safety, climate change, health, and pollution are particularly serious. UN-HABITAT sponsored the participation of several people from African bicycle communities.
