Showcasing the benefits of sustainable transport at Rio+20
UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg followed the example of Environment Minister Caroline Spelman to ride our bicycle through the streets of major cities around the world. Our interactive stand was part of the UK Pavilion at the recent Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, held in Rio de Janeiro.
The stand included a bicycle linked to a monitor which takes you through the streets of a number of different cities around the world including Santiago, Moscow, Guadalajara and London. The intention is to give you a feeling of the city streets from a cyclist's perspective and to help planners identify improvements that can be made to a city’s cycle network. Find out more about our cycling audits here.
The interactive Steer Davies Gleave stand also showcased many of our other services which help to create a more sustainable future for towns and cities around the world.
