The Velo-city 2013 conference


Building on established Velo-city discourse topics such as mobility, ecology and climate, health, the economy, resources, time and space, and social policy, a new topic will be opened for discussion at the Velo-city 2013 conference in Vienna: cycling cultures.

The motto of the Velo-city 2013 conference is therefore framed as “The Sound of Cycling – Urban Cycling Cultures“. The three main themes for the conference are:

  • Cycling Cultures
  • Cycling Cities
  • Cycling Benefits

The Velo-city 2013 conference program has been designed in cooperation with the leading Austrian Cycling NGOs, ARGUS and IGF, as well as with Austrian Universities and various Viennese cultural institutions. It will offer a variety of inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches to cycling issues. A special focus will be placed on developments in eastern and southeastern European cities.

The conference is inviting cycling experts from all over the world and from different cycling-related fields such as social cultures, the environment, health and economics, amongst others. The call for contributions has been closed on 22 October 2012.
