The world is off track towards achieving sustainable mobility.”

 

What does this mean?

It means the cost to society of the increasing mobility of people and goods—with its intensive fossil fuel use, air and noise pollution, lack of safety and security, and structural inefficiencies—is too high, and future generations will not be able to meet their own mobility needs. Today’s global mobility system is simply unsustainable in the long run.

This is the conclusion of the first-ever multi-agency assessment of the global mobility system, The Global Mobility Report 2017, produced by the Sustainable Mobility for All initiative.

 

What can we do?

The international community has a shared responsibility to reverse that trend, but how? Which pol­icies and investments will help deliver a mobility system that is universal, efficient, safe, and green? Is there a pathway for countries to follow? How can policy decisions on mobility help accelerate the energy transition toward low carbon? How can corporations play their role in ensuring a more sustainable future? What will the future global mobility system look like?

 

The 6th SuM4All Consortium Agenda

In January 2018, SuM4All embraced the ambitious task of laying out a pathway for planners, public decision-makers, and the private sector to follow to further the world’s progress toward sustainable mobility. The result is the draft Global Roadmap of Action.

The 6th Consortium will review and create a common under­standing of the proposed global roadmap of action toward sustainable mobility. The consortium will bring together:

·         All SuM4All partners who contributed to the draft

·         Country policymakers working to face the daily challenge of mobility

·         New external experts

 

We will generate insights, new thinking, and collaboration, to develop a truly impactful Roadmap of Action.
