Around the world women and men are striving to achieve a better mobility future for all. Yet, the majority of decision makers and planners in the transport sector are male, and women’s needs are often only poorly addressed – if at all. Although women contribute to transforming mobility, they frequently remain invisible and their contribution to safer, more inclusive and more sustainable transport is insufficiently acknowledged.
To empower Female Change-Makers in the transport sector and change mobility systems to cater to women ́s needs, the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI) seeks to highlight and support the role of women in sustainable urban mobility. Making their individual achievements visible is a long overdue step to change misconceptions and raise awareness.
