MOBILIZE is the annual sustainable transport summit of the Institute for Transportation and Development (ITDP), which brings together urban transport and development practitioners alongside world-class researchers to celebrate best practices and accelerate implementation of sustainable transport projects.
Each year, ITDP and the Sustainable Transport Award Committee select a city that has implemented innovative sustainable transportation projects in the preceding year. These strategies improve mobility for all residents, reduce transportation greenhouse and air pollution emissions, and improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians. The winning city and honorable mentions are honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC in January during the Transport Research Board Conference. The winning city hosts MOBILIZE later on that year.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, MOBILIZE shifted to a virtual format, bringing together sustainable transport experts from around the globe in a series of workshops and presentations.
