Cancellation: Mobilize Week in Pune, India

In 2020, the Mobilize Week was planned to be held June 10 to 12, 2020. Prior to the Mobilize days, VREF should have hold 2 workshops as usual on June 8 and 9. These events are now cancelled.

Due to the increasing spread of COVID-19, it has been decided to cancel the MOBILIZE summit scheduled for this June in Pune, India. ITDP is nonetheless exploring both local and digital alternatives to share Pune's achievements.

Both ITDP and VREF are disappointed to forgo this opportunity to bring our community together to learn from each other and showcase Pune, the 2020 Sustainable Transport Award winning city. However, the safety and well-being of our global community is the first and foremost concern.

Thank you for your continued support.
