Mobility in a Changing World

Over the course of two days, themes that are now more urgent than ever will take the main stage at Nova SBE, in Carcavelos. Innovation and post-pandemic changes in mobility, the energy transition, 5G, and IoT will revolutionize cities and the world as we know them. And if urban planning and micro-mobility were already a priority, now it is mandatory to rethink their importance in this new reality that Covid-19 has imposed.

The sunny side of this crisis is what can emerge from a post-pandemic world, which will have to continue with the energy transition. During the Grand Summit opening, we will discuss how new mobility habits and remote work and how digital can be an incentive for cities to become more sustainable. And, because the pandemic has brought with it other approaches to mobility, we will also try to understand which transformations will have to happen in public and shared transportation to ensure sanitation safety in this new era of social distancing.

State-of-the-art technologies could not be left out of this event. Big Data, in fact, was used to monitor the behaviours and mobility during the peak of the pandemic, raising questions about the limits of Democracy. That discussion will be held at Portugal Mobi Summit but there will also be opportunities to understand how 5G or IoT will change the urban ecosystem.

Changes that came to stay in the post-pandemic phase and their impact in urban planning and micro-mobility will be the final topics at the 3rd edition of Portugal Mobi Summit. Last mile trends, community distancing versus the energy efficiency of densely populated areas or other habits and city-life experiences will fill many hours of conversation and, most of all, a very necessary reflection to discover the paths and challenges of cities.
