This transformative edition boldly navigates the intricate landscape of urban mobility, challenging us to rethink the very essence of our cities.

Indeed, a city reflects its people at its core — by all means, it is a dynamic interplay of spaces fostering life, work, and communal flourishing. However, this edition contends that our urban mobility architecture often neglects the essential needs of communities. As we embark on this journey, the profound question echoes: 'A city for whom?'

Table of content

Through 23 compelling articles, our contributors and staff try to answer this question by bringing in examples, case studies, theories, and new perspectives to the table — all showing that sustainable mobility demands, above all, inclusivity.

Featuring #POLIS23 sponsors and partners Fifteen, Uber, and Voi, the magazine allows readers to understand how much bike-sharing schemes, equal access to EV-charging, and innovative safety approaches to micromobility can, with the right mindset and mission, become tools for true inclusivity.

The magazine also highlights brilliant practices and local measures from our membership — from the future host of the Annual POLIS Conference 2024 Baden-Württemberg to Turku, Viken, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and more, including associate members Mpact, RISE, and Open Mobility Foundation.

Including exclusive interviews and conversations with Plenary Speakers Stefaan Walgrave and Koen Kennis, Incoming and Outgoing POLIS Presidents Lot van Hooijdonk and David Dessers, 'A city for whom?' gives a taste of our Conference and then some.
