Solution description

Our solution is to make up a booklet of vocabulary that helps in creating the paradigm shift at the societal leadership level to talk about cycling in an exciting way ( to remove barriers and promote cycling from daily life)

Calculation of cycling potential at the societal and leadership level will be done by counting the variety of words used to promote cycling and change perception of specific leaders in their public speaking activities.

The cycling potential then translates into the action framework that allows the framework for cycling assimilation to work together.


Solution context

Marginalization / Assimilation of cycling at a societal leadership level to favor the discussion about cycling in a less shameful or difficult way.

The lack of vocabulary causes cycling to not seem exciting enough

Solution target group

Private and Public stakeholders at all levels.

Solution impact

Private and Public stakeholders at all levels.
