Explorative Conversations

Explorative Conversations on the Mobility of the Future

The series of REBALANCE conversations is centred around five topics which are key in defining our future mobility.  The invited discussants digged into the current narrative associated to each topic and debated on whether there are any robust change factors that can help predict which direction or development will be favoured in the long term. Key for REBALANCE is also to explore how our values, beliefs and aspirations will affect the development of each mobility topic or, conversely, how technological progress and expected developments will question our ingrained values and beliefs, and prompt cultural change.
