Voi is holding a landmark symposium in which the best minds across transport, business, innovation and accessibility will come together to discuss society’s much-needed push towards the 15-Minute City. The virtual event takes place on June 29.
The 15-Minute City concept, first described by leading academic Carlos Moreno, proposes that micro-mobility and public transport, working in conjunction with one another, have the power to unlock the true potential of cities; to turn them into vibrant places to live and work, where everything you need can be reached within a quarter of an hour.
We at Voi believe embracing the 15-Minute City will help make our cities more sustainable and liveable in the 21st Century. As cities and governments prepare for life post-coronavirus, we all need to contribute to ensuring that positive changes to our cities are long-lasting and equitable for all.
This is why we gather thought leaders across transport, policy and business for a 90-minute symposium on June 29. The virtual event takes from 10.30am – 11.45am CET on Hopin.
The symposium includes an introduction to the 15-Minute City concept and panels on transport, accessibility and innovation. Please join our meeting with speakers, including:
- Carlos Moreno, Associate Professor at the University of Paris / Sorbonne and creator of the 15-Minute City concept
- Lord Mayor of Dublin, Hazel Chu
- Karen Vancluysen, POLIS Network’s Secretary-General
- Fredrik Hjelm, CEO of Voi Technology
- Julia Hawkins, partner at LocalGlobe
- Martynas Gudonavičius, CEO of Trafi
- Hamish Stewart, Co-Founder, London Car Free Day
TechCrunch’s editor-at-large Mike Butcher will moderate the symposium.
