A large number of participants from European countries met in Amsterdam on October 4th, to attend the launch of the first edition of The Mobility Sphere Forum: Decarbonized mobility, mobility for all: transforming the way we move.

The Mobility Sphere by Transdev is a European think tank that explores the future of #mobility. It aims to reveal the new paradigm for mobility in 2050, by bringing together experts from across Europe.

Over the past few months, the think tank has been mapping out the 50 issues that will shape mobility in 2050. Experts, practitioners and public decision-makers provided insights into these long-term challenges which were the subject of insightful discussions during the Forum.
