#CommitToAct Streets for Life in Leipzig

During the Week of Action, the Alliance, representing its NGOs, will take part in the Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum (ITF), held in Leipzig, Germany. The Annual Summit is attended by Ministers with responsibility for transport, parliamentarians, and policy makers, and is therefore an ideal opportunity to bring NGOs’ call to action to those with the power to act. You can read more about the summit on ITF’s website HERE.
