Gender equality and sustainable development are two longstanding and central priorities in the Nordic-cooperation.
The project, Gendering smart Mobilities in the Nordic Region, taps into these challenges and aims at strengthening and proliferating Nordic Co-operation and models, and to contribute to a paradigm shift in overall transport planning and practices. Departing from the prevailing idea of smart, green and integrated transport the overall objective of this project is to contribute to a new Nordic model in transport, mobility and gender equality.
How can gendering new modes of transport and mobility make change happen? And how can such an approach contribute to systems and practices that are resource-efficient, climate- and environmentally-friendly?
A workshop and a book launch on the main topic Gendering Smart Mobilities in the Nordic Region will take place in Brussels on 4th-5th of March 2020, Danro conference room, Rue du Trône 98 / 8 floor.
About the book
The book considers gender perspectives on the implementation of digital technologies and smart solutions to effectively provide ‘mobility for all’ in urban spaces. It does so while attending to the agenda of creating green and inclusive cities. It deals with the conceptualization, design, planning and execution of these fast emerging ‘smart’ solutions. Authors from a range of disciplinary backgrounds have contributed to this book, designed to converse with mobility studies, transport studies, urban-transport planning and engineering, human geography, sociology, gender studies and other related fields. The book fills a substantive gap in the current gender and mobility discourses and will thus appeal to students and researchers studying mobilities in the domains of transport-urban planning, social, political and environmental science.
