thu25apr15:30thu17:00Mobility Talks 24: Zero-emission mobility in cities - what's the plan?15:30 - 17:00

Event Details

Cities in Europe are in the middle of the transition to cleaner modes of transport. At EU, national, and local levels, ambitious strategies and initiatives set the course towards zero-emission mobility. While the speed of the transformation varies from city to city, the transition requires both private and public stakeholders to answer key questions around the efficiency, safety, viability, and fairness of the new zero-emission mobility paradigm.

In this Mobility Talk, we want to take stock of the zero-emission mobility transition in European cities. Our experts will discuss their best practices to make urban mobility cleaner, based on own experience, use cases, and sector knowledge.
