Updated: Mar 12, 2019
March 7th 2019, 14:00 – 17:00
Location: The Common Ground, Institute of Advanced Studies
The T-SUM team will host a workshop at UCL to discuss the role of private actors in cities across the world in transitioning to sustainable urban mobility pathways. This is a pressing challenge in contexts where new mobility services and disruptions are entering markets currently served by collective transport operators.
We will hear contrasting experiences from Maputo, South America, Freetown and London, followed by a panel of experts including:
• Ed Parsons, Geospatial Technologist, Google
• Dr Matteo Rizzo, senior Lecturer in Development Studies, SOAS
• David Bull, former head of transport and urban planning, Birmingham
• LSE cities
The workshop will involve open discussions and working sessions with attendees, which include government officials from Sierra Leone and Mozambique. These include Freetown’s Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyer, Maputo’s Metropolitan Agency Director, Professor Antonio Matos, and World Bank representatives.
The event will be chaired by Professor Peter Jones (UCL – CEGE)
