The EcoLogistics was established as an initiative of ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) in 2016. It represents a selected group of ambitious cities that have committed to make the urban environment more sustainable and liveable through sustainable urban freight. These cities aim to achieve world class excellence in EcoLogistics through projects and peer learning. Cities benefit from being part of the Community through the shared knowledge and resources made available to the network, as well as opportunities to disseminate their successes. The Community is the first of its kind in the world entirely focusing on the sustainability and innovation of urban freight. Through established methodologies, capacity building programs, media and international outreaches, cities, together with ICLEI and technical experts, will have the access to the advice and knowledge to achieve EcoLogistics.

Description ICLEI and Changwon City have launched the EcoMobility Alliance, a select group of ambitious cities that have achieved excellent results in certain dimensions of sustainable mobility, and that strive to reach similar results in other EcoMobility fields. It is part of ICLEI's EcoMobility initiative comprised of two further major projects: EcoMobility World Festival and Congress, and EcoMobility SHIFT.

It is a transformation of the earlier Global Alliance for EcoMobility, which is a non-governmental organization founded and launched in Bali on 10 December 2007. An Alliance bringing together Local Governments committed to provide urban mobility that meets the needs of people. Though several activities, the EcoMobility Alliance reinforces local governments’ commitments to transforming their transportation systems and mobility patterns, aiming to reduce automobile dependency and become more sustainable, low-carbon and people-centered. Only organizations that are able to support cities with excellence in the field of EcoMobility will be invited to become official Partners.

Objectives Eco­Mobility is a means to prioritise the success factors walking, cycling, public transport, wheeling (using any man powered vehicle with wheels) in an integrated fashion such that a synergy is developed.
Activities Through various projects such as the EcoMobility Alliance, EcoMobility World Festival and Congress, and EcoMobility Alliance SHIFT, ICLEI brings cities together to have a collective and mutual learning and translate learning into practice by implementing policies, projects and investments to transform the current mobility patterns.

The Alliance has also brought forward the voice of Alliance Cities and their mobility concerns at various international events such as the International Transport Forums, Metropolitan Solutions, the UN Climate Talks in Bonn, COP22, COP23, and the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III). Needs assessment activities will take place either with selected cities individually or in a collective workshop that provides the opportunity to network within the EcoMobility Alliance. The needs assessment will begin a first stage of awareness raising for cities thorough a collective and conscious identification of actions that other cities are undertaking to advance urban mobility.
