The Politics of Mobility

18 June 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Organized by: Van Alen Institute
Venue: Van Alen Institute
30 West 22nd Street
New York, New York

Focused on increased competition for street space, the inclusive or exclusive nature of ride-sharing, and the many opportunities and threats posed by autonomous transport, this lively debate will illuminate the present and future of mobility. With voices from urban design, city planning, architecture, community activism, and academia, the talk will engage the following issues: who’s allowed to move and where? What forms of movement and modes of mobility are prioritized (or not)? What are the consequences of restricted mobility for different communities, and what can be done to achieve better outcomes for society?
