Welcome to Mobycon Academy

So much of the work we do here at Mobycon is about connecting with people, sharing our knowledge and showing people how Dutch design and policy can be used to inspire change locally. For years this has included masterclasses, workshops and study tours both locally and abroad. In April 2020, we expanded those offerings to include regular digital webinars in order to provide interactive online content no matter where people are in the world. Today, through the introduction of the Mobycon Academy, we are taking online learning to the next level!

An online, FREE, subscription-based platform, Mobycon Academy features new webinars, exclusive Q&A sessions, digital study tours, interviews with special guests, and plenty of additional, specialized content each month. Building upon our existing consulting work, Mobycon Academy allows us to connect with our peers around the world and share expertise and knowledge. Our ever-expanding offering of digital learning tools cover broad topics including Dutch design, policy, and planning, Sustainable Safety, as well as more fine-grained knowledge on specific design details and how to apply them in a local context in any community.

With new content added every month, there’s sure to be lots to keep you inspired!

Coming up on the Academy

Paris is changing its streets quickly. The re-election of mayor Anne Hidalgo, who has put the Parisian streetscape at the centre of her campaign, amounts to a powerful mandate from Parisians to continue this work. Her increased majority can also be seen as a call to move more quickly, covering more of the city, and connecting the network of infrastructure in the city centre with the greater Paris region. To deliver on these ambitions, the city has put together a team and a vision: The new Plan Vélo. Released last month, Plan Vélo has been widely reported on internationally. Most strikingly, the plan communicates a distinctly Parisian, and perhaps French, model for making cycling accessible to all ages and abilities.

In this webinar, Brett Petzer and Stephen Kurz review Paris’s cycling context, based on recent study trips and a visit from the city’s dedicated bike planning team, followed by a tour of the Plan Vélo itself. Together with Sébastien Marrec, an activist and researcher working on this ‘Mission Vélo’, they discuss how Paris’s vision for cycling and its streets is distinct from other models. We also discuss the role of walking, as well as other modes, in the French and Parisian context. Thursday, December 2nd, 2021 at 16:45 CEST / 10:45 EST.

Cycling around the world


Spend an hour with our experts as they take you through a variety of topics including Dutch design principles, Sustainable Safety, encouragement and behaviour change and more. Each webinar provides a thorough look into many of the methodologies and approaches we apply with our partners both locally and abroad, providing contextual examples of how they have been applied. With interactive polling throughout the webinar and a minimum of 15 minutes of Q&A following the presentation, these informative sessions will help inspire your current and future projects.

Digital Study Tours

Not everyone can experience Dutch mobility in-person. Our digital study tours provide the opportunity to experience cycling in the Netherlands from the comfort of your home. Join our Dutch colleagues as they ride through various Dutch cities, highlighting the historical context for many of the changes within the public space, as well as more fine-grained infrastructure details. Using the 360-camera, participants get a complete picture of how Dutch cities continue to work towards safe, sustainable traffic solutions.

Q&A Sessions

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that sometimes 15 minutes is just not enough time to answer all your questions. These 1-hour sessions give participants the opportunity to pre-submit questions to our experts about to gain more precise insight into their mobility design challenges. Using tangible, real-life examples, our experts talk participants through best practices, applying their technical knowledge and background to help you find solutions to some of your more difficult projects.

Special Guest Interviews

Join us as we sit down for informal discussions with experts in the Netherlands and internationally that are at the forefront of many innovative design decisions in sustainable mobility. Learn from leaders in planning, policy, design and more. Our special guest interviews will give you more context into many of the historical decisions that led to the Netherlands high cycling rates, and share the inspiring work they continue to do to keep pushing the boundaries of creating better streets for all users.
