Mobility and the environment during global pandemic a key discussion during tech conference Europe virtual editions.
Europe, May 20, 2020: #tce2020ve The virtual edition of TECH Conference Europe is addressing some of the most vital subjects, among which mobility and environment.
In every city and community around the world, congestion and high traffic have reached unbearable levels. It is simply destroying our quality of life and our environment, not to mention wasting our time, damaging our health, and without any doubt killing people. During the global pandemic, things have changed and we now see it’s possible to reduce the harm we do to our environment.
But, if you look into the subject deeper, you will find that congestion is not something that is happening to you. You are the congestion and the worldwide lockdowns have shown us that.
Each and every time you choose to get into your car alone and drive into the city, you are part of the problem which is not going away that easily. You are, in effect, doing this to yourself —which means you can choose to do something different.
There is no doubt that in many cities around the world, soon you will not be allowed to drive your car into the city or it will become so expensive that you will choose to do opt for a different method of travel.
On the 9th of June at TCE2020VE, you have the opportunity to hear more about this subjects and the plans that being implemented as you are reading this news from the top experts in the field.
