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.
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.
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.
