Electronomous: Active Travel and Micromobility, one happy family?

On September 20, POLIS will be moderating a panel at the 2021 Electronomous Conference on active travel and micromobility. Bringing together experts from the public and private sector, this session will look at the interaction between micromobility and active travel and the future of urban mobility.

Electronomous is one of Europe’s leading Mobility & Smart City Communities. This International Summit brings together Global thought leaders, Disruptors, Innovators, & Policy Makers helping them to create meaningful and valuable connections in this new era of Mobility. We have built a strong community of over Ten Thousand Mobility & Smart City Policy makers and professionals globally.

Electronomous creates a platform for our community to showcase their cutting edge technology to the mobility community & Smart Cities globally. We help bridge the gap between policy makers and industry.

On September 20, at 11:45 - 12:30 (CET), POLIS will be moderating a discussion on active travel and micro mobility.

Are active travel and micromobility siblings? Do they partly compete, or do they complement each other within a sustainable urban mobility ecosystem? How active is micromobility actually? How to avoid unwanted modal shifts, e.g. from walking to e-scooters? But also, how can light mobility modes join forces to make cities less car-centric and call for dedicated infrastructure, and how can they contribute to making the 15’ city a reality? These and other questions will be discussed at the POLIS session “Active travel and micromobility. One happy family?”

Moderator: Karen Vancluysen, Secretary General, POLIS
