We are excited to attend the Autonomy Mobility World Expo this week in Paris from March 22-23. Autonomy is the world largest gathering of policymakers, NGOs, corporations, start-ups and institutions from all over the world focusing on sustainable urban mobility. Each year, more than 8,000 participants, 300 speakers, and 200 exhibitors gather together to discuss the latest innovations and solutions on sustainable urban mobility. This year, Mobility Advisor Brett Petzer will be attending the conference and running a workshop on just and fair mobility and speaking on a panel on cycling and inclusivity.

Working with our partners at the DCE, Mobycon will be presenting a break-out session focused on just and fair mobility between 14:00 and 16:00 on Wednesday March 22 in Workshop Room 2. Our break-out session is part of a workshop on the bike-train combination facilitated by Chris Bruntlett and Emma Stubbe. Mobycon will be asking participants to use its Mobility Donut to think about the kinds of give and take required to build multimodal transport systems that work well for everyone. In particular, we will talk about how the costs and benefits of these transitions are shared in society, and what improvements we can imagine.
Date: Thursday, March 23
Time: 10:55 – 11:25
Location: Agora 4
Cycling should be for all ages and abilities. Therefore, we must create a low-stress cycling network that is suitable for 8-88 years old and wide enough for all kinds of special needs bikes. Even though there is still much to improve and learn in the Netherlands, there are also many lessons learned that can be applied in other countries.
