The way we live, work, move around, and use city spaces is intertwined and constantly evolving.

Populations globally are moving towards increased urbanisation. People want access to the benefits of the urban environment, but at the same time would like to be able to easily travel in and out of cities to have more living space or to engage in recreation.

How can spatial planning interact with mobility to create the ‘best’ outcomes for urban and rural populations? Which scenarios are optimal in terms of energy use and healthy human interactions? For example, will creating infrastructure for self-driving electric cars help people who live in rural areas get to work, and / or will it promote urban sprawl by allowing people to easily commute to the suburbs? Is this a ‘good’ or a ‘bad’ scenario?

Join us for a GreenBuzz discussion in collaboration with SBB and others to discuss how we can sustainably manage our transport and living spaces.

Who is it for?

– Mobility and urban planning professionals
