The Train of Ideas with the rolling exhibition „Visions for the Cities of the Future“ was at the heart of the international communication for the European Green Capital 2011. Six multimedia exhibition-containers were touring in 2011 five months through 18 European cities in 13 countries and inspired over 70.000 visitors.
The Train of Ideas offered citizens and experts also a platform to exchange ideas at European level. Thus, the exhibition presented some 100 best-practice projects from many cities in Europe. The motto to learn from other cities was put into practice here.
The Train of Ideas was inaugurated in all cities with high-level representatives, often by the local mayor or the deputy major.
In ten cities high-level roundtables were conducted in addition to the openings of the train. Those who could not see the exhibition live were reached by media reports, the website or YouTube.
