As cities are rapidly growing around the world, several challenges are confronting their future: environmental threats, pollution, congestion, lack of resources (water, food, and energy). How can we take care of the wellbeing of citizens, when we face such an uncertain future?
The urgency for a change is also an opportunity for making our cities better. Green logistics, for instance, not only help with congestion and pollution but can also radically upgrade our quality of life. Replacing infrastructure dedicated to heavy vehicles can unlock space much needed for people.
In this session, we will discuss the transformative power of the cargo bike, and the way it can reshape our cities. We will hear about these efforts from Groningen, the host of the conference, and from a visiting city to the Cargo Bike City Summit.
The session is led by Humankind‘s Lior Steinberg and Eva van Breugel.
