Cities from all over the world gather at Movin’On to create tomorrow’s mobility
There’s no denying it, sustainable cities are on the rise. All around the world, today’s biggest metropolises are developing ever more progressive solutions to increase their citizens’ quality of life. But sustainable urban living cannot be achieved without sustainable urban mobility.
If we talk more about cities than mobility itself, it is because changing mobility also entails transforming cities. Today, as cities are turning into megacities and urban populations are growing at an alarming rate, post-carbon living is edging ever closer to reality. We are all looking for the magical, holistic instant solution to meet the mobility needs of all city dwellers.
The task ahead is considerable. We must encourage soft mobility (walking, cycling, etc.), improve both the quality and the amount of public transportation and convince drivers to rethink their car use, all for the collective good. We must:
- Remember that density matters in transportation.
- Address smart cities and shrink car use without excluding suburbs, rural communities and highway systems.
- Build a combined infrastructure for transportation.
- Apply specific technologies to different levels and users.
Involve all levels of government (national, provincial, municipal, etc) in order to identify concrete and actionable solutions.
At Movin’On, nearly 30 municipalities from around the world will share their ideas, solutions and innovative technologies to bring global, smart, sustainable and multimodal mobility to life. From Buenos Aires in Argentina, to Portland in the USA, from Oyem in Gabon to Braga in Portugal, representatives of today’s biggest metropolises gather at Movin’On to build the world of tomorrow.
