On 14th March 2018 we will co-organize the first Happy Mobility Congress on the transition to inclusive mobility in Rotterdam. It is an event for thinkers and doers who want to connect and improve worlds. We present an inspiring program filled with presentations, pitches and workshops on inclusive mobility and how the city of the future can be created today. With keynotes from professor Derk Loorbach (on mobility transitions), Zipcar co-founder Robin Chase (on shared mobility), professor Karel Martens (on transport poverty / mobility happiness) and with the cooperation of, among others, Pascal Smet (Mobility Minister Brussels), Daan Zandbelt (National Public Environment Advisor), Anne Knol (Milieudefensie/Friends of the Earth) and Hugo van der Steenhoven (HuGoCycling). Journalist and author Tracy Metz will host the congress. Click here for the complete program, including workshops.
About the conference
Our cities are growing and becoming busier. It is a challenge to keep the city accessible and in motion. Every day we are confronted with polluted air, traffic congestion, social exclusion and other urban problems. It is time to take new paths. Mobility is not only about getting from A to B as quickly as possible. It is about being able to participate in the city, to get to work and to experience the city together.
Various solutions are already there. New technologies are only a part of it. During the Happy Mobility Congress we will look for ways to keep the city moving through sustainable and inclusive mobility. We are accelerating the urban future in which the city is accessible to everyone through active transport, such as walking, cycling and in combination with public transport. That is happy mobility, and that’s how we create a city on a human pace, for all people.
