Numerous presentations, debates, workshop sessions and the opportunity to meet experts, analysts and practitioners in the field of sustainable mobility make the Congress one of the most important Central European events dedicated to active mobility. We believe that it positively influences processes shaping cities that ensure growth in life quality of their residents. It is a meeting place for local governments representatives and businesses, residents, schools, institutions, non-governmental organizations and other people interested in the subject of mobility, not only active.

The venue of the 7th Congress of Active Mobility was European Solidarity Centre. This edition of Congress was focused primarily on promotion of healthy life style and active travels at short distances. Successful campaigns promoting pedestrian and bicycle communication were presented. The Congress was also an opportunity to share the experiences of Gdańsk, gathered during the implementation of the two editions of the "Bicycle May" campaign, which met with great interest of children and adult residents.

From April 7, Gdańsk hosted the consortium partners as well as nearly 30 representatives of European cities who came to the workshops to use the SWITCH campaign scenarios developed by the project.
