The Cities and Transportation program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in partnership with CIVITAS, a program of the European Union on sustainable urban mobility, solicits proposals for short form presentations on innovations in sustainable urban mobility. Innovations can span topics as broad as, “how I stimulated innovation in city government” to something more specific such as “how I integrated payment systems when there are multiple transit operators.”


Presentations will follow the Ignite or pecha kucha format of 20 slides of 20 seconds each. Presentations are timed so there is no wriggle room. The purpose of the format is to challenge speakers to distill their ideas to the most salient points and to tell a good story. Sample presentations on general topics can be found here: or Sample presentations on innovations in urban mobility can be found here:
