Pre-Velo-City masterclass

The Dutch Cycling Embassy and Cycling Embassy of Denmark are thrilled to partner on a single-day, pre-Velo-City masterclass—featuring Danish and Dutch experts—which will highlight best practices from both countries, and leave attendees with concrete steps to take back to their home cities.

The masterclass will take place at the Danish Embassy in Dublin from 11.00 to 18.00 on Monday, June 24th, and will wrap up with a networking reception hosted by Danish and Dutch diplomats. With a limited number of participants and a bargain price of just €190, you will need to act fast to secure your seat.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to go in-depth outside of the existing conference structure, exploring the successful principles behind Dutch and Danish policy making and infrastructure design. Attendees will be asked to identify specific challenges from their local context, and then work with specialists from both the public and private sector on solutions that directly address them.

On the day before Velo-city, Monday June 24th, the 2019 National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators meeting will take place in Dublin. This annual meeting is an opportunity for the National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators (NECC/Cs) to network with each other and share experiences and best practices. It also allows the ECF to present the latest developments in the central coordination of the EuroVelo network, a network of 16 long distance cycle routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent.


The National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators meeting is open only to the EuroVelo NECC/Cs, but as most of them will stay in Dublin for the Velo-city Conference, make sure to dedicate some of your networking time to talk to them and learn more about the ECF’s EuroVelo initiative!
