Today, 15 startup finalists demonstrated how they intend to help shape tomorrow’s mobility. At the end of the presentation, the public voted for their two favourites: Nino Robotics, whose purpose is to revolutionize the mobility of the elderly or people with a handicap, and SeaBubbles, which develop fully-electric boats using new foiler-technology in order to solve the problem of congestion within cities.

What happens when two entirely different cities join forces? The Lyon-Cochi partnership, presented by CODATU during a Working session, shows that both can benefit from it. Cities share expertise and transformation agility, and come up win-win practices in mobility and public health. Engage your city in such a partnership by joining the movement at allcities4oneplanet.org.

Are you listening? The engine of the T-Rex – this electric car made in Quebec by Campagna Motors – is completely silent. Only the discreet sounds of its gears can be heard.
