Envisioning a sustainable future theme: When urban mobility is inclusive (Recorded in Zoom, March 29, 2023)
This new episode of #UrbanLunchTalk discuss citizens’ different access to mobility, what it means for equality and inclusion, but also ways forward to improve urban accessibility and mobility for all groups in society. How inclusive was mobility 100 years ago or so, how is it now and how could it be in the future? What needs to happen to unleash the full potential of the 15-minute city concept in terms of inclusion?
