Wheels of change: Future-proofing urban mobility

Stage 3 (Ground floor)
19/06/2024, 16:30 - 18:00

Urban mobility stands at a nexus of the welfare of people, the economic vitality of communities, and the ecological health of our planet. As we seek to decarbonize our transportation systems, we must embrace a comprehensive and nuanced perspective when envisioning future sustainable urban mobility measures.

This session endeavors to dissect the complexities of this intersectionality, striving to unveil strategies that seamlessly integrate the diverse needs and vulnerabilities of women and other marginalized groups, ensure the economic viability of mobility projects, and steadfastly champion environmental sustainability. By doing so, we aspire to pave the way for a truly holistic and resilient urban mobility transition, one that is not only just and future-proof but also a model for transformative change at the confluence of societal well-being, economic prosperity, and environmental stewardship.
