EcoMobility World Festival kicks off in southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung

EcoMobility World Festival got underway Oct. 1 in southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung City

The EcoMobility World Festival got underway Oct. 1 in southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung City, gathering around 900 academics, experts and officials from home and abroad to discuss the latest trends in sustainable urban mobility and green city development.

At the opening of the festival, Premier Lai Ching-te said the event is an outstanding opportunity to showcase the government’s commitment to promoting ecomobility for sustainable urban development. Concrete measures have been adopted in this regard, he added, citing approval of NT$300 billion (US$9.9 billion) to NT$400 billion in funding for railway development under the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program.

According to Lai, two other headline initiatives are a five-year, NT$7.2 billion project promoting e-motorcycles, and a four-year, NT$3 billion program reducing urban traffic congestion through big data analysis and other smart technologies.

The premier also commended efforts by Kaohsiung City Government in hosting the festival and using it as a high-profile platform for sharing the metropolis’s related achievements and fostering exchanges between Taiwan’s cities and their overseas counterparts.

Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu said the festival is a valuable way of enabling residents and visitors to glimpse the future and see the shape of the city made possible via sustainable urban transport.

Becoming an ecomobile city constitutes a paradigm shift and the festival is a key step to achieving this change, Chen said. It is hoped Kaohsiung’s experiences will serve as a model for other major urban centers in Asia and beyond, she added.

According to KCG, the monthlong festival features a variety of activities illustrating the future of urban mobility in a real-time setting. These include concerts and performances, cultural and historic tours, exhibitions, forums and workshops.

A highlight is EcoMobility World Congress. Themed Livable, Shared and Intelligent, the Oct. 2-4 event seeks to promote creative collaboration and advance the EcoMobility agenda through panel discussions, presentations and seminars.

First held four years ago in Suwon, South Korea, the biennial festival is a major undertaking of Germany-headquartered Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI)—a global network of more than 1,500 cities, towns and regions committed to building a sustainable future.

In addition to Kaohsiung, ICLEI’s local members include the governments of Chiayi, Hsinchu, New Taipei, Tainan and Taipei cities, as well as Hsinchu and Pingtung counties. (SFC-E)

(CNA) A declaration issued at the close of the EcoMobility World Congress 2017 in Kaohsiung on Wednesday will be featured at the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 23).

The declaration was jointly issued by Monika Zimmermann, deputy secretary general of the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) World Secretariat, and Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊), who is the chair of the EcoMobility Alliance of ICLEI.

The declaration puts forth 12 strategies to facilitate commitment to sustainable urban mobility and ecomobility, including planning "our cities and their mobility together," prioritizing people over vehicles and supporting "the shared and efficient use of vehicles, lanes, curbs, and land."

The strategies include promoting equity, supporting fair user fees, working towards integration and seamless connectivity, and leading the transition towards "a zero emission and renewable energy transport future."

It calls for driverless vehicles in urban areas to be operated only in shared fleets and for the protection of the air space in the cities.

"We apply sustainability principles for moving goods: Green freight and ecologistics," the Kaohsiung declaration states.

The organizers said the declaration will be presented at COP 23 in November in Bonn, Germany, so it can be shared with the world.

The fourth EcoMobility World Congress on sustainable urban mobility was held Oct. 2-4 in Kaohsiung.
