HOLGER-FINAL quote1MOBI is already great. The focus on entrepreneurship on new mobility is strong and we feel it is better to enhance this character than trying to change the personality altogether. I like the idea of highlighting experiences in new mobility in rapidly emerging cities, and how this is helping the cities leapfrog or avoid some of the issues of cities trying to retrofit unsustainable systems (in which they may be locked-in).In sustainable terms is important to highlight the combined effects on social, environmental and economic terms.As an organization we concentrate mainly in measures that avoid the need for motorized travel (compact urban form, good design for non motorized modes) and shift travel towards more efficient modes.quote2
