Sustainable Mobilities: A Poorly Initiated Transition?
Thursday 15 November 2018
The transport sector is now the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases after the energy sector. However, unlike energy, transport emissions continue to grow at a high rate. By 2050, transport could become the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases on a global scale. In the face of such a challenge, how do authorities intend to ensure the long-term sustainability of transport systems? What measures do they propose? Are these enough? How can we do more? To answer these questions, the Mobile Lives Forum launched an unprecedented research project that mobilized seven researchers over four years and across 14 countries around the world.
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.
