Low-Carbon Mobility Workshop
On behalf of the University of Toronto’s Mobility Network, Urban Climate Action Project, and the Climate Positive Energy initiative, the SDGs@UofT Initiative, as well as the City of Toronto, I am pleased to invite you to attend a workshop focused on pathways to the adoption and implementation of low-carbon mobility. Titled Low-Carbon Mobility Workshop, this event is the first in a three-part workshop series designed to facilitate the exchange and mobilization of both practitioner and research knowledge in advancing the City's TransformTO Net Zero Strategy.
This workshop will focus on the challenges of and opportunities for meeting the TransformTO goal of having 75% of trips in Toronto under 5 km walked, biked, or taken by transit by 2030.
About the Workshop
Conversations at this event will explore: (i) potential policy frameworks that would serve as enablers towards sustainable low-carbon mobility; (ii) financing mechanisms to support strategic, technical and modelling studies, as well as implementation of their recommendations; (iii) successful initiatives and best practices towards decarbonisation of mobility from other jurisdictions from which to draw lessons and identify gaps and potential areas of future intervention; (iv) transportation and mobility planning for advancing the decarbonisation agenda, with an emphasis on urban land use, public-transport, urban to suburban connectivity, and active transportation considerations; and (v) opportunities to achieve community priorities and co-benefits (e.g., health, wellbeing, clean air, calm streets etc.) through sustainable low-carbon mobility solutions.
About the Series
In addition to convening and engaging diverse academic and non-academic actors in solutions-focused conversations, this workshop series will provide students involved with valuable skills and experience in interdisciplinary, community-based, equity-focused research and opportunities for professional development and networking in their field.
