From the Velo-City 2010 Web site (
Velo-City Global 2010 in Copenhagen will bring together approximately 1,000 cycling experts, city planners, decision makers, NGOs and researchers to discuss the potential and challenges of cycling. The conference theme is ‘Different gears, same destination’. This is to stress that in spite of different backgrounds and different levels of cycling, all are heading toward the same goal: to make greater numbers of people cycle more often in cities throughout the world. The overarching themes that will be addressed particularly during the plenaries and also generally in the sub-plenary sessions include the following:

• Cycling as a way to improve the quality of life
• Co-benefits of cycling - how cycling is good for a whole range of reasons
• Cycling as behaviour and culture
• Democratic and egalitarian aspects of cycling
• Global responsibility to learn the lesson of the car-centric past

The sub-plenary sessions will be divided into four parallel themes: Green Living, Healthy Living, Urban Living and Mobile Living.
The deadline to submit abstracts is January 11, 2010.
