Session 2: Green Metropolitan Solutions and Urban Infrastructure
Changing how we travel and embracing new technologies is key to making our cities cleaner, greener and happier. While cities recognise and espouse the benefits of building low carbon, resilient economies, they need to use every opportunity to progress further. The first step is to strengthen and expand existing public transportation networks so that they are more convenient and more accessible. Secondly, we need to invest in sustainable transportation technology to create fuel efficient and low-emissions vehicles. Finally, we need to design biking and walking friendly cities. With these investments, we can transition to a cleaner, safer, and more affordable transportation infrastructure.
