Walking and Cycling Masterclass Partnership

The partnership focuses on disseminating the use of the ‘benefits evaluation protocol’ to support cities in collecting and analysing data related to the health and climate benefits of improving city walkability and bikeability. The Masterclass is open to all C40 cities, and to Novo Nordisk’s Cities Changing Diabetes cities, focusing on leading cities and those committed to scaling-up and accelerating action in bikeability and walkability, and to those proactively planning walk- and bike-friendly cities. The partnership convened a group of 6 global cities for a first masterclass in Copenhagen in 2017, following which the Bangalore Transportation Commissioner announced the implementation of a bicycle sharing scheme in the Indian city – quoting his experiences in Copenhagen as a key inspiration for this decision. 

Partners: Novo Nordisk, Gehl Architects, C40 Cities.
