Smart Mobility: The Future is already here!
A talk for Cyprus - the EU nation with the highest rate of car ownership
Cyprus has many brave people engaged in promoting sustainable mobility. The Susutainable Mobility team in the Department of Public Works is skilled and visionary - and most of all passionate! They are behind the organisation of the Conference today, and they are the ones who secured lots of EU support for initiatives on the island. The future is coming!
But there is no reason why it should not come anyway:
1 - In most countries people are driving less and less
2 - Cars are no longer a status symbol for the majority of youth
3 - The car industry is very actively engaged in other initiatives: from power bicycles to integrated systems to a future of car users rather than owners
4 - Many cities are experimenting with shared cars, driverless trials and driverless public transport.
5 - Technology is moving fast
A few tips at the end: how to prepare for the future?
