Contents and Schedule
The Bootcamp focuses on the transition towards zero-emission mobility, addressing mobility and logistics. During the two days, we will investigate how our cities can cope with the challenge of reducing carbon emissions and improving the well-being of their residents. We will investigate tools that support a just transition, such as impact evaluation, co-creation, and inclusive design.
The Bootcamp consists of inspiring lectures, discussions, challenges, co-creation sessions, and an excursion and brings together actors from transport, mobility, traffic and urban planning, public sector authorities, decision-making, service providers, and academia. A series of lectures, discussions, and workshops from renowned academics and practitioners will explore how the 8As of transition conceived by Prof. Cathy Macharis can help policy-makers, transport and logistics operators, citizen organizations, and the people living in cities themselves to improve mobility in our cities. One of the questions that will be addressed during the Bootcamp hosted by Footprint and Digital Hub Mobility is How might we accelerate carbon reduction through collaboration?
The Urban Mobility Bootcamp is targeted at professionals such as policymakers, public transport operators, private mobility operators, public sector representatives, EU employees, students (Master/PhD), and everyone else working in the field of urban mobility and logistics.
