Milano CiclABILE è un progetto di social e public design teso a promuovere la mobilità sostenibile incrementando l’utilizzo della bicicletta in città, attraverso l’impegno dei singoli cittadini e della pubblica amministrazione in una fattiva reciproca collaborazione. Un progetto che guarda all’etica e all’impegno del singolo come parte di un tutto, per migliorare la vivibilità urbana.
Milano CiclABILE è stato parzialmente messo in atto a Milano durante il FuoriSalone 2008 in partership con la prestigiosa rivista “INTERNI” e con il patrocinio dell’assessore al Traffico e Ambiente del Comune di Milano, Edoardo Croci.
Milano CiclABILE nasceva per stimolare la mobilità sostenibile e un nuovo umanesimo in città, prima ancora che si parlasse di Bike Sharing.
È un gioco, ma cercava di mettere in rapporto le diverse utenze della strada, e cercava di produrre tra queste dei cambiamenti di relazione, creando inoltre un’occasione di contatto e collaborazione tra Pubblica Amministrazione e cittadini.

Milan CiclABILE was partially put in place in Milan during the FuoriSalone 2008 in partrship with the prestigious magazine “INTERNI” and with the patronage of the Councilor for Traffic and Environment of the City of Milan, Edoardo Croci.
Milan ciclABILE (ciclabile means biking path, but in this case it plays on the double sense in Italian, because cicl is part of italian for bicycle, and abile means capable) – is an award winning project: third Prize and three honorable mentions at the 2008 Green Dot Awards in Los Angeles, Ca.
Milan CiclABILE was born to stimulate sustainable mobility as well as a new humanism in the city, even before starting to talk about Bike Sharing. It was a game, but it tried to connect the different users of the street and tried to produce among these a change of relationship, also creating an opportunity for contact and collaboration between Public Administration and citizens.
