Ecosystem(s):
Socioeconomic and environmental characteristics of the area : 
Curitiba is the capita of the State of Paraná. There are 3.600.000 inhabitants living in the metropolitan area of area of 15, 913.24 km2 and density 227.17 inhab./km2. The area HDI is 0.783, considered to be high. The GDP is nearly
R$ 135 billions and a GDP per capita R$ 38,995.77.The urban bus system a reference worldwide but with the equivocated policy for expansion of urban fleet the traffic conditions have deteriorated and vehicular emissions have substantially increased. The project CICLOVIDA has been pushing the agenda for lower private vehicles and the integration of cycle-mobility alternatives.
Description of sustainable development challenge(s) in the area the project addresses: 
As far as mobility goes, the challenge is to provide reliable and affordable alternatives for the population in the present time and for the future. The mix and integration of mobility alternatives will dramatically improve the quality of life, inclusion and economic productivity for the region. Curitiba, as Brazil in general, has relied on combustion engine vehicles (bus, cars) for decades and the degradation of the urban space, the travel time and air quality is a major issue.

Rationale: 
The central idea was to turn the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), in partnership with the Technological Federal University of Paraná (UTFPR), a diffusion core of a culture of more sustainable and healthy urban mobility with the emphasis in the use of bicycles. There were and there are many initiatives in place with inter and multi-disciplinary approach. They all consider evidence-based recommendations, demonstration, seminars, lectures, art and culture events and productions, in order to promote the "culture of the cyclo-mobility".
Objectives: 
The main goals are to promote the "culture of cyclo-mobility" across the internal community by mobility modal challenges, visual and multimedia production, web site, simulator to the Campus community and the external community.
Activities and/or practices employed: 
• Seminars, internal and external
• Academic dissertations and theses
• Intermodal challenges
• Interview in media outlets
• Participation in public hearings
• Presentation of project to public officials
• Website with all the material
• Exchange with NGO, schools, and public officials
Size of academic audience: 
Estimates of 1000 people year since there is media coverage, a permanent website and publication
Results: 
Among many others, the 2018 intermodal challenge http://www.ciclovida.ufpr.br/?p=4261 , bike rides http://www.ciclovida.ufpr.br/?p=4308, seminars http://www.ciclovida.ufpr.br/?p=4312, and most recently, a cycle routes plan developed by faculty and students will be adopted by the City of Curitiba.

Lessons learned: 
The challenge is to keep a large team motivated and integrated, to keep the work inter and multidisciplinary and document the work. We have full institutional support from UFPR administration, but we lack resources to produce printed more material.
Key messages: 
" culture of more sustainable and healthy urban mobility"
