Slovenia has been for more than a decade a regional champion in the promotion of sustainable urban mobility in the region of South-East Europe. In particular its capital Ljubljana. No surprise, then, that the GIZ Open Regional Fund for South-East Europe – Energy Efficiency chose it for a study trip on urban mobility.
Lubljana has been awarded as the “European Green Capital for 2016” by the European Commission. The city administration has managed to make this city a pleasant place to live and work by shifting its mobility concept: it sees walking as the most preferable way of moving around. Cycling comes next, followed by public transportation, while driving a car is considered the least desirable form of mobility. Now, it’s not only attracting tourists from all over Europe but also urban practitioners are choosing it for a study trip on urban mobility.
