Are you working with transport, energy or urban planning in Nordic cities/regions or national authorities? Then we welcome you to attend our conference where you will receive answers as well as a possibility to discuss questions like:
How do we travel, and transport goods in a sustainable city?
Young people's views on mobility today?
Zero emission zones - how can they be designed?
Successful virtual meetings and efficient distance working - how to do it?
How to plan Super Cycle Highways?
The role of Nordic public actors in the deployment of charging infrastructure?
