Transforming Transportation 2022: Climate-Centered Mobility for a Sustainable Recovery

Follow the event on Twitter #TTDC22

Changing the way we move is essential if we want to build a better future for people and the planet. And even though the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the transport sector into disarray, the crisis also provides a rare opportunity to build back better and transition toward green, resilient, and inclusive mobility. Using the current context as a starting point, Transforming Transportation 2022 will explore how we can reimagine transport to help address climate change and support a lasting, sustainable recovery.

Hosted jointly by the World Bank and the World Resources Institute, this year’s edition features a prestigious lineup of global leaders and experts from the public, private, academic and civil society spheres. Together, they will showcase the latest thinking and disruptive solutions that are opening new doors across the industry—from innovative public transport approaches to vehicle electrification, micromobility, smarter logistics, and more.

All major sessions will be streamed right here on February 16-17. Tune in, share your ideas, and be a part of the global #TTDC22 conversation!
