The future is on the horizon: we must move from ambition to action if we are to radically transform transportation and make sustainable mobility a reality. Thus, it is apt we will be closing the Annual POLIS Conference 2022 with the Closing Plenary, titled 'The 15-year City: From Audacity to Action'. 

The session will explore the '15-minute City', and how this transformative approach to urbanism, as well as other radical solutions, can guide our journey towards climate neutrality, better air quality, improved safety and reduced congestion.

Transport decarbonisation targets loom larger than ever, as our speakers step to the stage, 2030 stands just over six years away.

An effective, durable- and just- transition to sustainable urban mobility demands the radical, audacious thinking as envisioned by the 15-minute city concept and other bold approaches, coupled with concrete action and strong leadership.

How can 15 minutes shape the next 15 years for our cities and regions? We dive in.
