Cathy Macharis is a teaching professor in Sustainable Mobility and Logistics at the University of Brussels (VUB), coordinator of the research group MOBI and a writer. We interviewed her about the impact of Covid-19 on our travel behaviour, the rise of autonomous vehicles and the recipe for a future-proof mobility system.
From the 22nd until the 24th of February a gathering of smart and creative people took place in Groot-Bijgaarden, near Brussels. More than 2.000 people joined the event Mobility of the Future. Besides the conference program, there was a hackathon to brainstorm about mobility challenges in Belgium. Read about the results of the #SocialCar challenge.
On 7th of September, Taxistop and Autodelen.net launched the idea of “mobipunten” in Flanders Region. These mobility hubs provide tailor made opportunities for sustainable (and shared) mobility. The inspiration came directly from the Share North project as project partners city of Bremen and city of Bergen are already experimenting with this concept.
