While remote working might be here to stay, mobility is a crucial aspect of our urban lives - cars, shared rides, MRTs, electric vehicles, cycles and even our feet bring us to essential places and enable us to receive deliveries from the comfort of our homes.
Singapore made the decision to phase out vehicles with internal combustion engines over the next 20 years along with plans for increasing charging stations for Electric Vehicles (EVs). Is this the green revolution we needed for our mobility system or can more be done?
Here are some questions to consider when thinking about circularity in mobility systems:
1)[Regenerate natural systems] Have we made an effort to preserve natural capital needed to build cars and other vehicles?
2) [Keep products and materials in use] Have we tried to ensure our mobility infrastructure is used optimally and for a long period of time?
3)[Design out waste and pollution] Are we working on new technologies that can eliminate the carbon emissions given off in manufacturing cars, MRTs, cycles (and even electric vehicles)?
Join us, as we try to define circularity in the mobility sector with a panel of established industry experts.
This webinar, the third in a series organized by Circular Cities Asia, will address the following points:
· What are the existing linearities in the our mobility system?
· How can an increased urgency towards supply chain resilience post-covid boost the circular agenda for mobility?
· What are the policies needed to facilitate a move towards more circular mobility systems in Singapore?
