The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) seek to realize the human rights of all. Cycling is already delivering on these goals worldwide, contributing to almost all of the 17 SDGs, and this is a good reason to invest more in cycling. Making transportation more sustainable is of critical importance for humanity and the planet. Moreover, active mobility is a human right on all scales – including the right to cycle. Governments at all levels should provide safe access to public space, protect those that walk and cycle, and ensure – through mobility – equal participation in society.
The document “Cycling delivers on the global goals“, edited by the European Cyclists’ Federation and the World Cycling Alliance (2015), shows how cycling is directly linked to 11 Sustainable Development Goals.
