An interactive and dynamic session on Youth and mobility
Transport and mobility are key for providing access to education, jobs, leisure and other primary services. Research is showing in the developed world (Europe and the US) that the car is no longer the status symbol it once was, however in much of the developing world there is still little option to the car is you wish to appear ‘cool’ as a young person.
The session will be very interactive between experts, governments and youth-led groups. This session will allow youth representatives to explore what they should be expecting from the outcome of the COP and their governments commitments to a low carbon future in terms of transport.
The session will present the views of youth in terms of sustainable transport with a focus on the developing world
Experts will present their vision and some examples of cities that are taking the lead in policy development, as well as some examples of how technology can provide solutions and other innovative solutions that are youth orientated. The panel session will be a question and answer session – also taking questions from twitter that we expect will come from all over the world.
