The awards ceremony will be held in Leipzig, Germany from May 22-25. The project is initiated and launched by the Hoi An City Department of Culture and Information in coordination with HealthBridge Vietnam.
The project is designed to address two main issues: road safety and public health, by developing a sustainable green transport system which focuses on cyclists.
Accordingly, the project will develop a free and low cost shared bicycle programme to create the first private public-private partnership system in Hoi An by linking the existing bicycle rental services of hotels in the city.
The project is aimed at building an eco-city and preserving its historic values as well as improving the quality of life for the people of the ancient city.
