This brochure presents an overview of the project Sustainable Mobility and Collectors of Secondary Raw Materials conducted in Belgrade during 2014 and 2015. It illustrates how the collection of secondary raw materials (waste picking) using cargo bicycles is an unexpected example of the green economy and how sustainable development does not necessarily require large scale transition, but rather can emerge by stimulating and advancing already existing economic activities or initiatives. For us, sustainable mobility is a point of departure towards a more inclusive society and more resilient communities.
