    • Business

This is a very special podcast episode. First, we are recording from our office in Copenhagen and then we have a guest again. But he is not just A guest, he is THE Mikael Colville-Andersen. Mikael is “The Pope of Urban Cycling”, once born in Canada, now a native citizen of Copenhagen. He works as an Urban designer with his own company and mobility expert all over the world and also hosts an urbanism documentary television series called “The Life-Sized City”. Mikael has held multiple talks around the world about the importance of cycling in the city, including two TED talks and he has published several books, among them “Copenhagenize - the definitive guide to global bicycle urbanism”. Chris chats with Mikael about how our cities have been changed in the past century, how Copenhagen and Amsterdam have become the role-models for urban planning worldwide and how we as citizens can re-conquer urban space. We talk in detail about how design is the answer to urban challenges why the strategy of cross-pollinating ideas in multi-diverse urban planning teams is the ultimate key. This autumn, Mikael’s book „Copenhagenize - the definitive guide to global bicycle urbanism“ is being published in German language. Until then you can buy the English version here.
