CPH:DOX: ‘Bikes vs. Cars’ w. Debate
Wednesday 9th October 17:30-20:00
Format: Film screening + debate event
Come join us in the auditorium of Copenhagen City Hall, when CPH:DOX, Politiken and Live Like Tomorrow invite you to a free screening of ‘Bikes vs. Cars’ (2015) with a follow up debate about the challenges that comes with being the world’s best city for bikes.
Copenhagen is drowning in more than 25,000 leftover bikes, the number of injured cyclists in the traffic is rising, and the police clearance rate for bicycle theft is around 0.5 per cent. In addition, a lot of new players are mingling in the cityscape, with shared electric cars and scooters providing more sustainable alternatives to gasoline cars, but taking up space on roads and sidewalks.
Meet Klaus Bondam (CEO, Danish Cyclists’ Federation), Jonas Larsen (professor in Mobility and Urban Studies, Roskilde University), Thomas Heltberg Juul (CEO, GreenMobility) and Sarah Badoux, (Public Policy Associate, Voi), when we invite the citizens of Copenhagen to join a debate about bicycle culture in Copenhagen and how the world’s best city for bikes becomes even better, greener and more safe.
Get your free ticket through the Billetto link and show your ticket at the entrance to the auditorium. The debate will be in English.
