Join the DWIH New York, University Alliance Ruhr and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability for an event in conjunction with New York City Climate Week, the biggest climate summit taking place this year.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the mobility industry particularly hard, while also providing short relief to cities otherwise fighting smog and pollutants through high levels of travel and transport. How can we use this moment to re-define and adapt urban mobility to shift towards sustainable modes of transportation and supply chains for the future? How can we prioritize accessible service, public health, and urban development while keeping down pollution? If efficient and affordable public transportation is one aspect that made cities attractive, what will a post-COVID-19 world look like for urban mobility?
