Urban Transport 2030 - Mastering Change

MOTIVE AND THE PRIMARY AIM OF THE CONFERENCE

The increasing urban population is a major challenge for humanity, whit the greatest pressure directed towards urban transport. On one side, there is a global need to reduce carbon emissions, which are largely due to traffic, while also meeting the need for greater mobility, on the other.
Are these two needs of urban areas really opposites? How can they be reconciled? Is there a universal model or scenario? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed at the conference.
Rather than waiting for changes to occur before addressing the resulting problems retroactively, and thus likely unsuccessfully, let us anticipate the changes and preempt any issues they might bring.


 

THEMATIC FIELDS:

  • Mastering Changes in Urban Transport
  • Public Transport Challenges
  • The promotion and Integration of Non-motorised Modes
  • Parking Management Policy
  • Smart, Clean and Safe Mobility
  • Social Equity in Urban Transport
  • Open and Big Data
  • Demand Modelling and Simulation
  • Best Practices in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
  • Integrated Corridor Management for Urban Transport
  • Funding Sustainable Urban Mobility
