Sustainable mobility – Making the change

Welcome to Mistra SAMS final conference on September 10, 2024. The main theme of the conference is making change happen, with a focus on insights and initiatives for sustainable and just accessibility and mobility. The conference will also address experiences of prototyping possible futures together with citizens, and the public and private sector.

Sweden’s climate targets state that we should have no net greenhouse gas emissions by 2045, and the EU’s climate law sets the same target for 2050 The climate targets require rapid emission reductions, not the least from the transport sector. How can we achieve a fair transition?

The research in Mistra SAMS has been focused on exploring how measures for sustainable mobility and accessibility, such as digitalization, can be applied in ways that contribute to reaching Sweden’s climate goals. The research has been carried out by means of transdisciplinary methods in close collaboration among researchers, citizens and public and private actors, and with a focus on imagining and prototyping possible futures by means of a Living Lab approach.

Digital conference

The conference will be held online. During the conference, ConverStations will be organised: digital conversation stations, or mini-roundtables, on specific research results led by Mistra SAMS researchers. You will be able to participate in two of the ConverStations and log in to them in turn. (Scroll down to see a full list of the ConverStations)
