ECF meeting in Vienna

For the last time before the conference, the Velo-city 2013 Executive Committee will meet on
8 March 2013
in Vienna. In keeping with the motto “Cycling is a City Changer”, Vice-Mayor Maria Vassilakou, ECF President Manfred Neun and Velo-city Vienna Conference Director Wolfgang Dvorak will highlight cycling-related news about Vienna and Velo-city 2013. Vienna’s new cycling infrastructure, advances in cycling campaigning and international innovations made visible by the Cycling Visionaries Awards will demonstrate that a smart and liveable city can highly benefit from cycling.
Vienna’s Cycling Cultures Network

One element within the scope of the preparations for Velo-city 2013 was a series of networking meetings to boost the interest in cycling among Vienna’s cultural sector. Various stakeholders of Vienna’s cultural sector, such as museums, theatres, festivals, libraries or off-scene venues were brought together to give thought to more intense work involving (bi)cycles. This cycling story presents an overview of the institutions and initiatives committed to building the Vienna Cycling Cultures Network as a process of manifesting social capital to facilitate the development (and evolution) of cycling cultures in Vienna.
