Success at International Road Federation Congress

In the following video you can hear the head of the IRF commit his organisation to use IRF’s resources and convening power, together with others, to take on congestion.

I have it on good authority (the man to my right in the picture below), that this was added to the planned remarks as a result of the work that several people, including me, did to raise awareness of the congestion issue at the Congress.

Magid Elabyad, VP International Programs and Member Services, IRF; Brendan Halleman, Director, International Programs and Advocacy, IRF; Paul Minett, Chair, Ridesharing Institute; and Arif K. Rafiq, Director, Membership Development and Marketing, IRF.

I don’t want to declare victory in any sense, but this was the best possible outcome I could hope for at the Congress.

Thanks again to my wonderful network for helping me to be there. Watch this space as we create a platform for real change.
