cyclingThe consultants of Decisio have contribute to the Agenda of Tour de Force by providing an infographic about the social benefits of bicycling. Tour de Force (a partnership between governments, companies, civil society organisations and research institutes) wants to increase the number of kilometres cycled by 20% over the next decade. To reach this objective, the Joint Bicycle Agenda 2017-2027 has been released. Important is that if we continue to achieve the growth of bicycling in the Netherlands, we can be an international role mode for resolving global challenges such as a climate-neutral economy, liveable cities, and a healthy lifestyle. The Decisio infographic Investing in Cycling is available in English.
