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…).

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

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.
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.
