Inspiring mobility pilots from Boston to Bogota. Join us on a trip around the world?
The Embassy of Mobility will tour the world in 2020 and look at the impact of Covid-19 on mobility. How adaptive and agile are our mobility systems, and how do they affect our quality of life? The Embassy invites visitors to a virtual world tour.
How can mobility systems contribute to the livability of people in the city and the village? The Embassy of Mobility wants to investigate this in the coming period by means of various experiments in the Brainport region. Of course, the largest test case presented itself in March of this year. Curator Rob Adams: “Through corona you saw in one fell swoop the impact of our transport on our environment.
Together with the partners of the Embassy, Adams collected inspiring projects of how mobility systems are being worked on worldwide in which the social impact is central. One example is the initiative of Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo. She argues that cities are now designed with the car in mind. Her proposal is a ’15-minute city’, where all facilities can be reached within fifteen minutes by public transport, on foot or by bike.
From 17 to 25 October the world trip can be experienced via the website of the Embassy of Mobility. On Monday 19 October there will be an inspiring talk about the future of emission-free mobility, in which transport movements of different modalities take place around hubs. After DDW there will be met-ups about the mobility experiments that will take place in the Brainport region in the coming year. The results can be seen at Dutch Design Week 2021.
