PLANNING AND DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY – A CONVERSATION WITH UN-HABITAT

by | September 20, 2013
Category: Events
Join us in a Conversation with UN-Habitat as they prepare to release their Global Report on Human Settlements 2013: “Planning and Design for Sustainable Urban Mobility”. This report argues that the development of sustainable urban transport systems requires a conceptual leap. The purpose of ‘transportation’ and ‘mobility’ is to gain access to destinations, activities, services and goods. Thus, access is the ultimate objective of transportation. This report provides important and thought-provoking insights and policy recommendations on a fundamental aspect of making cities work: connecting people and places by planning and designing sustainable urban mobility systems. We look forward to you joining this meeting of experts.KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Joan Clos, Executive Director, UN-Habitat
