About

Matti Koistinen, Executive Director of Finnish Cyclists' Federation and member of Finnish Cycling Embassy gives us an insight on how Finnish people move in their towns.

Did you know that 52 % of families in Helsinki do not own a car? The city plans to make private car ownership obsolete by 2025. Finnish children really show the way how mobility should be: 75 % of kids living 1-3 km away from the school either cycle or walk to school - independently or with their friends. Why Finnish parents do not take their children to school? We also hear why Finns keep on cycling trough the long snowy winters.

Ask him all your questions on this interactive speech in the heart of Gent.
The evening will be in English.
You can have a drink (or more than one) at the lovely bar from the Youth Hostel.

Acces is free - you can contribute if you wish.
