Mikael Colville-Andersen is a filmmaker, photographer and urban mobility expert who is also known as Denmark's Bicycle Ambassador. He lectures around the world on how cities can and should re-establish the bicycle as a respected and accepted transport form.
In his presentation 'Four Goals for Promoting Urban Cycling', Colville-Andersen explains Copenhagen's journey – then, now and into the future – towards establishing the bicycle as a feasible, acceptable form of transport. Colville-Andersen shows how other cities can be inspired by the Copenhagen experience.

The Melbourne Cycling Forum
A moderated panel discussion will lead on from Mikael's talk about the real corridors of influence: our city’s bike lanes.
Expert commentators explore the possibilities for redefining our cycling landscape with a focus on city cycling – to and from work – presenting it as a viable and sustainable mode of transport.
The forum brings together advocacy leaders, urban designers and transport planners to openly discuss current and emerging issues and future opportunities. A key focus point is how design in the environment, the office and on our roads can create the necessary behavioural change needed to increase the number of cyclists in Melbourne.
The forum is designed to engage Melbourne’s cycling community and free valet bike parking will be offered.
