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 29 June.
The 15-minute city concept, first discussed by leading academic Carlos Moreno, proposes that micromobility and public transport, working in conjunction with one another, have the power to unlock the true potential of cities. It can turn them into vibrant places to live and work, where everything a person needs can be reached within a quarter of an hour.
We at Voi believe that 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 29 June. The virtual event takes place from 10.30am – 11.45am CET on Hopin.
The symposium includes an introduction to the 15-minute City concept, followed by 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.
