Women in Urban Mobility aims to raise awareness of female perspectives and gender equality in the urban mobility sector. The project strives to empower women to take entrepreneurial action; encourage companies, cities, and governments to foster gender equality; and enrich the innovation process in urban mobility with female perspectives to increase social inclusion and shape the future of urban mobility for everyone.  

The three European cities – Barcelona, Sofia and Munich – come together to contribute their knowledge about urban mobility and passion for empowering women to:  

  • build a thriving community and fostering creative exchange on innovative urban mobility concepts and perspectives. 
  • contribute a more gender diverse perspective to urban mobility. 
  • enable rich and immersive collaboration between cities, research fields, corporates, and start-ups.
