Velo-city is an annual event organised by the European Cyclists’ Federation in cooperation with a different city every year. The ethos of the event is about more than going to a conference with an exhibition, it references joining a community of passionate people who are there to take action and make a difference.
The event is now open for submission of abstracts, with applications closing on November 3rd 2023.
The core theme for the event is Connecting Through Cycling, where participants are invited to share ideas, projects, data, stories, and initiatives in front of a global audience. Sub-themes for consideration include:
Connecting through Cycling
Connecting people and communities
Connecting regions, cities and neighbourhoods
Connecting cycling with other modes
Connecting industries and sectors
The general call for abstracts welcomes those working on cycling, sustainable mobility, urban planning or any other related field who would like to present at Velo-city 2024 Ghent, and is open to anyone who is working towards achieving better cycling for all.
The academic call for abstracts is an opportunity for students, researchers or employees of a University or a research institution where you are researching cycling, sustainable mobility, or any other related field, and would like to present your insights.
