There is a real political momentum in the EU for cycling with the recent adoption of the European Declaration on Cycling. This conference will bring together political leaders, policymakers and experts to exchange views and discuss the next steps to elevate cycling to a fully-fledged transport mode at European level.
"Ride as much or as little, or as long or as short as you feel. But ride.” - Eddy Merckx
We will cycle through the various aspects of the Declaration with inspiring high-level panel debates on cycling policies, road safety and cycling infrastructure and investments, as well as in-depth break-out sessions. Furthermore, there will be the possibility to visit some of the Flemish cycling realisations in the area.
In parallel, European Ministers of Transport, and representatives of the European Parliament and the Commission will exchange views in a closed session on EU cycling policy and the next steps.
It is not yet possible to register for this conference. More information regarding the programme and registration will follow in November 2023. In the meantime, we invite you to leave your name and email so we can contact you directly.
We look forward to welcoming you in Hasselt, Belgium!
