How Can We Have Zero-Emission Mobility Fit For the Younger Generations?
Registrations here

Climate change is a real threat to our future, and it will be the younger generations that will have to bear the impact of its disastrous consequences if we don’t act today.

They have the greatest stakes in the success of achieving a zero emission society, which must include sustainable transport which currently can only be guaranteed through the mass uptake of electromobility.

For this reason, it is of fundamental importance that the youth of today are involved in the development of new societal models that will help prepare for this. Our event will engage industry, policymakers and representatives of the younger generations on how to successfully implement this change at the municipal, regional, and international levels.
