Mobility 2030 – The paradigm is changing, are we?

This year, the Portugal Mobi Summit will highlight how we move from ideas to action. Some of the ideas that will be discussed include: how to plan for a decarbonised city, how to boost energy transition in private and public transportation, how to make the most of the micro-mobility hype, how to reconceive airports and railways, and how individual day to day decisions are crucial to making this happen.

In the last 4 years, the Portugal Mobi Summit has aimed at contributing to positive change, by helping to shift the mindset towards a more ecocentric worldview.

This year the summit will take place online and on-site in Cascais, Portugal.
