Join Jim Banks for an overview of sustainable mobility and insight from personal experience. Hear and discuss the challenges that corporations and individuals face in integrating sustainability considerations into their behaviours.
What are the major trends shaping mobility? How will energy security, climate change and other driving forces shape the ways in which we move people and goods in the coming decade? What are the future challenges for corporations? What are the future opportunities for young professionals in this landscape?
One thing is certain; the future will not look like the past. We must all recognize that, through our actions, we are shaping our collective future. We have new and important information; clearer understanding of our world and our impacts upon it and inspiring examples of new directions. Now it falls to us to apply that understanding and to lead from where we stand to create a better world.
