About the Event
Veloforum is an annual interdisciplinary conference on the edge of transportation policy, sustainable development and civil society.
The topic of this year’s Veloforum is “Cycling Economy – an Effect of Bicycle Transport on Urban Economy”. What is the benefit of a bicycle in cities and people who live there? What is the social and economic impact of cycling and investments in the development of cycling and/or walking urban infrastructure?
In 2018, the 10th Veloforum Forum was held in Ivano-Frankivsk, which gathered more than 170 participants and speakers from 8 countries. 54 settlements of Ukraine were represented. In previous years, the conference was hosted by Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Kryvy Rih, Lviv, Poltava, Evpatoria, Kyiv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lutsk.
