Transforming urban mobility has the potential to transform people’s lives. Not only because urban mobility is something many people use to manage and shape their daily lives. Far more is at stake. Based on the case of Stavanger and similar Norwegian coastal municipalities, EIT mobility, Nordic Edge and BLOXHUB will host a roundtable discussion during Nordic Edge Expo 2022, in which we will take a deep dive into the discussion of how to integrate a value-based approach to urban mobility.
At this roundtable we will take a deep-dive into how a mobility based on a a paradigm shift can be a catalyzer for healthy living, social equity, and biodiversity based on the values of inclusiveness and social equity. The roundtable will relate this discussion to the case of Stavanger West.
The roundtable discussion is a 3-hour event facilitated by BLOXHUB’s Urban Partnership initiative.
The workshop will have participation of a broad group of European urban development stakeholderswork. drawn from the ecosystems of the three partners; including municipalities, private sector, researchers, startups, students, and companies.
