The Role of Communication in Shaping the European Mobility Culture

Cultural changes can be analysed, among other things, through the evolution of the mainstream language used by media and the way values are channelled to citizens: advertisements, movies, press articles, artistic production, video games, social media, etc. Word and image search is performed to this end on a significant sample of popular communication, spanning several decades, in order to unveil signals and messages reflecting the evolution of the mainstream mobility culture and to identify dominant representations of explicit or underlying values and their dynamics over time.

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.
