A team of two or three Dutch experts visits a foreign city where they get together with the local decision makers and planners for two days. The workshops are intensive, interactive and hands-on. The format is as follows:
After a public plenary introduction of the Dutch approach to transportation, a particular site or sites in the host city are identified by the local experts to be the focus challenge of the workshop. The group is divided into teams (each with both Dutch and local experts representing a variety of interests) that will work in parallel to come up with solutions for the presented challenge. Teams will visit the sites by bicycle and explore solutions that span practice and theory. These solutions are presented with drawings, photographs, designs, and a marketing strategy in a lively public session at the end of the second day, in the presence of key stakeholders, including elected officials, politicians, press and anyone interested in the future of sustainable transportation in the city.
