Scaling the global mobility transition


TUMI is taking the task of transforming urban mobility to new horizons and invites you to be part of #MobilizeMinds. Our vision is to elevate the power of minds to transform urban mobility worldwide.

“A severe lack of adequately equipped staff and policy makers is holding back a global transformation towards sustainable mobility for all.”

The urgent need for transformative action towards sustainable mobility for all on a local, national and global level is well known, but there is a lack of implementation to meet global goals.

In addition to an insufficient number of local staff and departmental capacity, not enough staff are professionally trained or have experience in how to implement modern sustainable mobility solutions.

Put simply, there is a high risk that a sustainable mobility transition might not happen because we do not have enough skilled people. We are looking forward to addressing this challenge with you.


Globally and over time, there have been a variety of programs and initiatives on sustainable mobility. However, none to date has comprehensively grasped the capacity needed for transforming urban mobility.

our action

TUMI Offer

The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative has initiated research and action to better assess and address the future needs for education and capacity building, and to find out how involved actors can move towards better coordinated global action.

Educating and developing capacity among practitioners and change makers is crucial for the future of sustainable mobility. Our ambition is to provide our partners and further stakeholders with high-class learning experiences and resources to scale the global mobility transition.

We measure our knowledge offers by these aspects

Professional education -

It is clear that we need to transform urban mobility, but to do so we need the required staff.

Content and curricula -

What has been taught 20 years ago, shouldn’t necessarily be taught today.

Implementation and impact -

How do trainings translate into projects and transformation on the ground?

We estimate the future global demand at 250.000 skilled urban mobility experts.

We calculated the need for sustainable transport experts based on UN population growth projections until 2050 and surveys on staff in urban administrations.
