Our existing physical, social, economic, technological, and institutional INFRASTRUCTURE(s) overwhelmingly favors private car ownership and private car use. This SYSTEM sustains itself at great cost to our households, to our communities, and to our planet. This SYSTEM drives the climate crisis, perpetuates inequality, and is hostile to community. The INFRASTRUCTURE(s) is rooted in racism and in social and environmental injustice.
At the Shared-Use Mobility Center 2021 National Shared Mobility Summit, we ask: “How might we shift the SYSTEM? The WHOLE SYSTEM!”
The 2021 Summit will be DISTRIBUTED through the entire month of July—4 hours every Tuesday (July 6, 13, 20 & 27). Each week we’ll start a conversation about how to precipitate the BIG SHIFT in a focus area: physical, informational, institutional, financial, policy and regulation, etc. We’ll spotlight success, and find early lessons—innovations that can scale—to help build a shared, equitable and sustainable future. Our sessions and speakers will share ideas on how to structure a system that actually works for our households, our communities, and our planet.
