TUMI is supporting cities in achieving their sustainable mobility goals through the TUMI Challenges
Cities in developing countries and emerging economies face bigger challenges than ever before. Innovation is no longer optional; it is necessary so cities can continue to deliver results and improve life of their residents.
200k TUMI Challenges
From 2018-2021, the Global Urban Mobility Challenge supported cities around the world with up to EUR 200k for their innovative pilot projects to start the urban mobility transformation.The TUMI Global Urban Mobility Challenge, sponsored by BMZ, is an initiative to support local leaders in their mobility transformation efforts.
Through the TUMI COVID Challenges, cities receive the urgent support they require. With cycling as a mode of transport having proven particular resilience throughout challenging times, many of the TUMI COVID Challenges focus on promoting and improving the urban cycling networks. This way, the TUMI COVID Challenges do not only ensure resilient urban mobility systems, they also accelerate the sustainable mobility transformation!

TUMI is a great initiative because it not only developsimproved mobility, but it also plays an important role in reducing carbon and in building our capacities across different development sectors, including education and health."
