18 May 2016 - 20 May 2016 Leipzig, Germany

ITF’s 2016 Summit on Green and Inclusive Transport will explore the importance of low-carbon transport as an essential element in the transition to a green growth economy as well as the changes needed to make transport more inclusive and provide access for everyone to jobs, public services, and other opportunities.

About the Summit

The Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum is the premier global transport policy event. Held since 2008, it brings together transport ministers from around the world to share policy perspectives with CEOs, heads of international organisations, thought leaders from civil society, academia, and media.

This major conference addresses strategic and topical issues across all transport modes where participants can engage in the debate through a variety of session formats. With over 1 000 attendees from more than 70 countries, the Summit is a truly global policy and networking event.

The theme of the 2016 Summit: Green and Inclusive Transport

Transport plays a central role in ensuring economically and environmentally sustainable prosperity for societies, with the benefits more equitably shared among all citizens.

ITF’s 2016 Summit on Green and Inclusive Transport will explore the importance of low-carbon transport as an essential element in the transition to a green growth economy as well as the changes needed to make transport more inclusive and provide access for everyone to jobs, public services, and other opportunities.

  • How does green and inclusive transport contribute to economic growth?
  • What incentives are needed to shift users to more sustainable modes of transport? How can policy frameworks be refocused to bring accessibility to the centre of planning?
  • What funding mechanisms are available for greener and more inclusive transport services?
  • How can governments better support innovation and technologies that drive solutions?

How transport should respond and meet challenges will be at the centre of debate at the International Transport Forum’s 2016 Summit.
