Transport-related greenhouse-gas emissions continue to rise in France with no prospect of short-term improvement. In addition, the proposed introduction of a carbon tax was scrapped following the Yellow Vests movement. In this context, the Mobile Lives Forum wanted to understand how important travel really is in the daily lives of French people (excluding holidays). This work allows us to imagine effective, fair and practical transition policies to move towards desired and more sustainable lifestyles. This is what we strove to do when we launched the 2020 National Survey on Mobility and Lifestyles.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
