It is a region where people like to live and work and in which companies and organizations are willing to invest in the region's profile on Health, Energy and Sustainable Mobility. 

The Arnhem Nijmegen City Region is known for its cycling policy and network of cycling super highways. That's why the region was selected to host the Velo-city 2017 Conference. Moreover, the city of Nijmegen is National Cycling City 2016 and has won the European Green Capital Award 2018. In addition, the region is increasingly developing activities and innovations in the field of (sustainable) e-mobility, e.g. through a clean mobility center in the city of Arnhem and the Dutch Bicycle Center in Nijmegen.
