Workshop on ”Realizing sustainable mobility transformations”

Published Apr 17, 2024

On April 10-11, leading experts and representatives from civil society, business, the public sector and academia gathered at Vår Gård in Saltsjöbaden and joined a workshop arranged by Mistra SAMS.

The workshop led to the development of proposals for concrete initiatives that can be implemented in the near future and contribute to a sustainable transformation in line with the 2030 goals.

The proposals concerned, among other things, applying the 15-minute city in a Swedish context, joint governmental initiatives for enhanced goal-fulfilment, strengthened inclusion of perspectives from the local community in transport policy and planning, increased awareness of mobility justice, developed economic policy measures, a strengthened future perspective in contemporary planning and the need for new working methods including new ways to test, learn and evaluate effects.

The participants were satisfied with the outcome of the day. And in May we will meet again for a follow up workshop.

- It has been a well-composed group, bringing together many different areas of expertise, and changing perspectives, the participants concluded.

The 15-minute city

The 15-minute city is a concept for urban planning in which everyday necessities and services are easily reached within 15 minutes. In the 15-minute city, going to work, shopping, education, healthcare, and leisure can be done by a 15-minute walk, bike ride, or public transit ride from any point in the city.
