Planet Assembly 4: Mobility – What Must Change?

A Thought Laboratory

The Hive

Bring your best ideas to this solutions-focused workshop session. Facilitated by sustainability entrepreneur Andy Middleton, Chief Exploration Officer at the TYF Group, and joined by key speakers to be announced, we’ll look at the key issue of mobility. We’ll discuss the scale of the issue and a range of solutions, how to action them, how they might impact on their lives and how to manage the change.

Creating sustainable mobility goes far beyond reducing emissions. Greening how we all travel will improve the lives and livelihoods of billions of citizens around the world. How dramatically are we willing to change the way we move? How might a combination of new technologies, walking and cycling radicalise our behaviour and innovate what we take for granted? We want to hear your experiences. Come to share ideas that will inspire new ways to move around efficiently and sustainably.

This workshop is part of our Hay Festival Planet Assembly, a daily, inclusive conversation over ten days involving lay people, scientists, commentators and experts. We want to empower everyone to be accelerators and multipliers for the dramatic policy transformations that are needed immediately to tackle the acute climate and biodiversity emergencies.
