Mobility 2040: predicting the future
Mobility has brought us a lot of wealth and prosperity. But there are also challenges such as congestion, global warming, pollution, safety and energy security. When solving those issues and making future predictions, there is a lot of bias thinking such as wrong extrapolations/conclusions, tunnel vision and groupthink. In this workshop, insights from the past and the present are tackled. The question of what could be reality in 2040 will be discussed.
