We are pleased to announce that our TUMIVolt partner city Lviv, Ukraine will be presented with the Honorable Mention at the 2021 Sustainable Transport Award ceremony. This award comes from the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), a leading global organization that promotes and develops different forms of environmentally sustainable mobility.
Lviv applied for the Sustainable Transport Award based on their achievements in reconstructing their Station Square, as well as brining forward their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), working on public transport promotion and further developing the city’s cycling infrastructure.

The ITDP award ceremony will take place virtually on February 25, 2021, and it will celebrate the winning city, Jakarta, Indonesia, as well as Lviv - two cities whose sustainable transport initiatives stood out from a number of applicants. Each year, the STA Committee chooses a city that has implemented outstanding and innovative sustainable transportation projects. Winning strategies succeed in improving mobility for all residents, improving safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.
The ceremony will feature guests such as Eduardo Paes, the mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and ITDP CEO and 2015 STA winner, Heather Thompson. Orest Oleskiv, Head of Transport Office Lviv City Administration, will receive the 2021 Honorable Mention on behalf of the city. TUMI is honored to have our project with Lviv be considered by the Committee.
Please join us in celebrating the inspiring sustainable mobility initiatives of Jakarta and Lviv on Thursday, February 25, at 6pm CET or at 7pm WIB Tickets can be obtained for free here.
