Exploring alternative transportation practices, such as biking, are required to meet the challenges of increased urbanisation
Cities face massive issues with both overcrowding and decreasing air quality. Consequently, if we want cities worldwide to adapt to a future with increasing urbanisation, alternative transportation practices are required. Denmark holds a strong tradition for people from all layers of society to bike. This has become an integral part of the Danish story. In fact, more than 50 per cent of the people who live and work in Copenhagen commute by bike every day.
Cycling can be a part of creating a smart and liveable city. With Denmark’s long tradition for cycling, Danish companies are able to use this knowledge and experience to develop new innovative solutions that can be integrated in cities around the world and solve multiple challenges.
