About the webinar

In the face of the global pandemic caused by COVID-19, the transport sector faces new challenges in ensuring basic essential services and a safe way to travel. In this context, this webinar aims to analyze the impact of the health emergency on public transport and urban mobility, as a trigger for the identification of future challenges and opportunities for low emission mobility.

The webinar aims to be a space for dialogue in which, from three different and complementary perspectives, the effects of COVID-19 on public transport and urban mobility are analyzed and their implications for the future are reflected upon. To this end, the situation will be analyzed from the economic approach to transport, the conception and development of public urban mobility policies and from the private technology and transport sector as a driving force for innovation.

Finally, there will be a space for exchange with participants to reflect on the impacts, challenges and potential opportunities after the pandemic to develop clean, sustainable and safe urban mobility.  The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform at info@ledslac.org.
