Explorative Conversations: Gaining Insights into Future Mobility Issues

This explorative conversation series is a curated compilation of REBALANCE’s dialogues centered on mobility future. Dialogues 1 and 2 speak about technological innovation: here we focus on automated vehicles and the relevance of freedom and control, as well as highlighting the importance of inclusion before digitalization, and when we do digitalize, it is a mean and sustainability is the goal. Dialogues 3 and 4 touch on the future: in these sections, we question the effectiveness of a green mobility transition without an accompanying attitude shift and the importance of convincing people that their real need lies within the agency over movement. Lastly, Dialogue 5 emphasizes the significance for technology in all sectors to be steered because technology isn’t inherently fair – however, by prioritizing awareness and inclusion we have a better chance of changing assumptions and our future for the better.


As part of the REBALANCE initiative, talks will continue once a month in dialogue with Andreu Ulied.

This has allowed to identify that the development of sustainable multimodal mobility as one of the key challenges for European cities and functional urban areas.
