THE 2021 EVENT
One of the resounding key strengths of African culture is the ability to work together under the principles of Ubuntu – ‘I am because you are’. The same principle has been applied to the overall theme for this year’s Smarter Mobility Africa 2021. This year’s Smarter Mobility Africa looks at taking a deep-dive into achieving and maintaining strong collaboration in the transport sector. To be at the forefront of change and in alignment with the Global Sustainable Development Goals, Africa must work as a collective to transition to cleaner modes of mobility to reduce its carbon footprint and improve air quality, whilst ensuring that mobility serves everyone
From 5 -7 October 2021, our attendees learnt three key-take away points:
- How can we shift our mindsets to welcome new narratives for Smarter Mobility?
- How is Africa building strong and meaningful relationships to carry out new technologies in achieving Smarter Mobility?
- In future, how will Smarter Mobility change the landscape of transport across Africa?
Our 2021 digital event topics
The global pandemic has quickly set in a new reality which demands innovation within public transport. Gone are the days where public transport services are left behind.
When it comes to electric vehicle adoption, Africa should be setting its own agenda.
Walking & Cycling
Walking and cycling are still the highest modes of transport for urban commuters in African cities.
Mobility As A Service
A key defining conversation for the future of transport in the city needs to include mobility as a service.
