Save the date! INDIMO-SPROUT Webinar.

 

On 2 February the INDIMO and the SPROUT project will hold a joint webinar titled: Planning for a more inclusive urban mobility, addressing urban mobility transition by making use of inclusive digital mobility tools.

The webinar will bring both projects together to share their research results and explore synergies and possibilities on how the SPROUT pilot cities can make use of the INDIMO tools. The webinar will discuss the pilot use cases of Emilia-Romagna (INDIMO) and Valencia (SPROUT), both based on the installation of e-lockers, and see how they can benefit from each other by analyzing the key stakeholders involved, challenges, barriers, drivers, benefits, differences, and commonalities.

The webinar will be also an opportunity to analyze how the INDIMO policy evaluation tool can be implemented and tested by the SPROUT cities, in this case Valencia, to formulate a more inclusive policy response that makes its e-locker an inclusive urban mobility solution.

CoMotion LA '21 : Key takeaways

 

From November 16 to 18, Los Angeles became the center of sustainable mobility by hosting the 2021 edition of CoMotion LA, the international meeting of the actors who think and imagine tomorrow’s mobility. Mobility Makers had the chance to be a part of this revolution as a media partner and as a jury of the LA New Mobility Challenge.

This year, many topics were addressed during the three days of conferences, discussions and networking. At least, several major trends emerged, including air mobility and the importance of hydrogen as a new energy for charging electric vehicles (buses, trucks, cars, boats…).

New Event! How Cities Are Making Holistic Housing Policy

As Next City spotlights the “Solutions of the Year,” we’re excited to announce the lineup for How Cities Are Making Holistic Housing Policy.

In cities across the United States, affordable housing policies are moving beyond simply building homes for low-income residents. Accessible housing can be the starting point in a drive to advance goals related to climate change mitigation, anti-displacement, equitable internet access and more.

Join Next City Housing Correspondent Roshan Abraham as he leads a panel discussion with city officials from Austin, Boston and New York City to discuss programs in those cities that highlight the Right to Return, net-zero emissions housing projects, and mandatory broadband access in all new affordable housing construction.

AET Transport and Mobility Forum: Webinar 02 December 2021

 

Free-flowing car-sharing systems in a spatio temporal urban ecosystem – an urban informatics approach

During the last years, sharing mobility is one of the emerging transport modes, but seldom is its planning entrusted to private operators and not seen as a major vector of urban mobility. The aim of this webinar is to provide an extensive analysis of the relation between the utilisation of car-sharing vehicles and urban spatio-temporal patterns, focusing on the analysis of 4 weeks of free-flow car-sharing data in the City of Milan.

How Can We Transform Urban Slums into Urban Neighborhoods?,

Monday, November 8, 2021 at 7p.m. (Bangkok Time)

Housing is the really big issue where it constitutes over 70% of all real estate sectors in cities. The appearance of slums and low income housing sectors reflect some major housing problems which should be solved for the sake of the benefits of the poor and the society as a whole.  All cities in the world have slums, squatter settlements, shanty towns and the like. How can we transform urban slums into urban neighborhoods?

Informed Cities - are you attending?

 

The 9th Informed Cities is co-organised by the GreenCharge, and OpenHeritage projects, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

Through a series of interactive sessions, we will explore how these topics align, and how problem solving, or specific processes might be addressed differently. Themes explored through the joint sessions include: How do experts from the different fields respond to the same administrative hurdles, how do they interact with interest groups and the public? How do we approach new technology? Do we see similar patterns, or different ones?

In addition, participants will be able to explore the individual topics of cultural heritage and electric mobility in more depth through deep dive sessions.

Unlike other online conferences, Informed Cities Forum is an interactive, collaborative event, which makes use of innovative formats, and is willing to explore unconventional topics. Active participation by the audience is not just encouraged, but is required, and will be rewarded with lively and energetic discussions.

Dates: 26- 28 October
