13 Madrid joins the project at the second meeting, in Cartagena de Indias (10 to 12 May 2011): through its entity Mobility Foundation (that run from December 2005 to June 2011, / it has subsequently been incorporated into the structure of the EMT (the local transport company) This entity was a facilitator of governance and emerging business under the premise of shared knowledge. In Cartagena the EMT presented two projects: the Mobility Roundtable ( ) and the private public project implantation Electric Vehicle (Movele and Madev) The project MOBILITY ROUNDTABLE was chosen as best practice for Goiania. During the summer Madrid sent all documents relates to The Mobility Roundtable, including: Phase 0 Workshops ( ) Report on the state of Mobility (2008 and 2009) Madrid participation

14 Origin: decisive moment Madrid suffered a major political (even social and media) disputes during 2005 and 2006 as a result of certain measures to traffic deterrent (parking meter system expansion from a small central area to a large part of the city) This dispute was resolved by agreement between the neighborhood associations and the Council to start a dialogue (through a Mobility Roundtable) to try to avoid hereafter this kind of conflicts. Mobility Foundation (belonged to City Council) was commissioned to design and implement this table, that became an instrument of governance beyond the specific conflict of parking meters. The principal challenges were : 1) to create a first framework accepted by every key agents with regard to several issues: composition, rules, objectives; 2) get a first climate of confidence in the functioning; 3) consolidate this process forward. Madrid participation

15 Handicaps & Composition The handicaps were, above all: A climate of generalized mistrust Previous experiences that lead to greater conflicted, increased even by the media Lack of culture of constructive dialogue in the governance of everyday politics (beyond and in spite of Spanish success in the governance of the Big Issues during our democratic transition) …logical consequence of the lack of democratic spontaneity and tradition Applicability to Latin America and Caribbean All those handicaps: largely shared with Latin American cities and societies The proverbial Latin (American o European) sociability does not get a translation for collective issues The difficulty of importing dialogue tools from countries with another character and tradition President: Councilor on Safety and Mobility Regional Federation of Neighborhood Associations of Madrid (FRAVM) Interprofessional Union of the Community of Madrid (UICM) Representative of Public Universities in Madrid (CRUE-Madrid) Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Madrid /CISM - Madrid Business Conf.

R. as a permanent framework to facilitate, in general, the governance of urban mobility Madrid participation This table has become built as: a permanent plenary Roundtable (about 21 members) some analysis and deliberation workshops and thematic semester (with guests "ad hoc"): actions (regulations, discipline, new services, new policies) impossible or very difficult in other case !! and a report on the state of mobility, annual. All accompanied by a so-called "Knowledge Sharing Network" made up of many outreach activities (open format).
