Our convictions for mobility 2050

Silo-thinking isn’t the way to approach tomorrow’s mobility. This is the founding principle of Futura-Mobility, the think tank bringing together the views and expertise of various industry stakeholders in the mobility sector. Our objectives? To reflect as a group on the challenges and solutions to envisage mobility for 2050 that is both people centric and climate combatible. The nine convictions and questions that have emerged from this forward-looking exercise seek to stimulate public debate and develop projects to ensure mobility meets the challenges of the 21st century.
