To achieve sustainable transport and to provide users with more affordable, accessible, healthier, and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits and patterns, automated and connected multimodal mobility must play an increasing role, together with smart traffic management systems offered by digitalization.
On the other hand, it is crucial to think and plan the cities, in order to ensure the essential services and proximity functions, equipment, and identity, while simultaneously creating spaces that are adjustable and flexible to support fast changes.
In 2018, the Graz Declaration detailed, under the heading “Starting a new era: clean, safe and affordable mobility for Europe”, the ways in which mobility could help Europe to achieve the climate goals for 2030. Later in 2019, the European Green Deal established the commitment to reform the EU Economy towards a sustainable future, by designing a set of deeply transformative policies, such as accelerating the shift to a sustainable and smart mobility. Now, following the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is living unprecedented times and is facing a crisis that convenes everyone – technicians, politicians, and citizens – to debate the present and future challenges in Mobility Management.
Considering the necessary deep changes in economy, society, policy, environment and technology, our future depends on the lessons we will learn from the moment we are living today and ECOMM 2021 wants to actively encourage the discussion and exchange on the Beginning of a New Era at European level.
Presentations at ECOMM 2021, taking place on 24 & 25 November, should refer to one of the following topics, all related to the main theme of the conference “”Beginning a New Era – Accelerating Shifting to Sustainable Mobility”
1 – Beginning a New Era – Accelerating shifting to Sustainable Mobility
