About this Event

Every year, the Sustainable Transport Award Committee selects a city that exemplifies groundbreaking solutions in sustainable urban mobility. The STA Ceremony celebrates the winner and the honorable mentions of the STA, bringing attention to best practices and lessons learned that other cities can also follow. This year’s STA ceremony will acknowledge the 2023 winner, the City of Paris, France, and two honorable mentions, Bhubaneswar, India, and the State of Jalisco, Mexico. Join us for the Ceremony to hear inspiring stories from city leaders and the highlights that won these regions STA recognition.

About the Sustainable Transport Award Series 2023

The Sustainable Transport Award Series from the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) is the annual showcase of the STA winners which brings together urban transport experts, development practitioners, and world-class researchers to celebrate best practices and accelerate the implementation of sustainable transport projects.

Each year, the Sustainable Transport Award (STA) Committee selects a city that had implemented innovative sustainable transportation projects in the preceding year. These strategies improve mobility for all residents, reduce transport-related greenhouse gas and air pollution emissions, and improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians. In February, the 2023 STA winner and honorable mentions will be honored in a virtual ceremony. 

To continue the celebration and share the stories of our winning cities, ITDP and the STA Team have been preparing the Sustainable Transport Award Series 2023, a webinar series that dives deeper into what earned these cities their STA recognition. This spring, two technical webinars will highlight the honorable mentions, Bhubaneswar and the State of Jalisco. In the fall, webinars in partnership with the City of Paris will explore the city’s sustainable transport interventions. 

Now in its eighth year, this Series (previously known as the MOBILIZE Summit and Mobilize Virtual) will continue to showcase best practices and insights from cities that are changing their residents’ lives with sustainable, equitable, and accessible mobility. 

Join us as we speak with city leaders, planners, and practitioners and RSVP to the upcoming webinars at STAward.org.
