Transforming Transportation 2015 explores smart solutions for sustainable, prosperous cities
Action this year on sustainable cities and transport will shape development and quality of life for decades, say experts
2015 is a pivotal year for the global sustainable development agenda. For the first time, cities will be a focal point and sustainable transport features clearly among the solutions. Global agreements expected over the next 12 months will lock in the choices we have about how to live, learn, work, and play in our cities.
The recent Transforming Transportation 2015 conference focused on how to take advantage of these moments to catalyze action that will make our cities better places to live. From the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) expected in March 2015 to the chance for a binding international climate agreement at the COP21 climate negotiations in December, today’s decisions will set the tone for global development for years to come.
