08-11-2023 09:30 08-11-2023 11:30 Europe/Madrid How Ecosystems Can Help Cities to Be Smart

In an era of rapid urbanization, the concept of a "smart city" has become increasingly popular. Smart cities leverage technology and data to improve the quality of life for their residents, enhance efficiency, and address urban challenges. However, there is a growing recognition that the road to smart cities should be paved with green infrastructure and a deep appreciation for ecosystems. Ecosystems, with their intrinsic ability to support sustainable living, are emerging as essential partners in the quest for urban smartness.

This session focuses on congestion charging (implementation of a fee for drivers to enter certain areas with their vehicles). While it has been found to be an effective tool to meet local mobility and air quality goals, there remain crucial questions, especially in terms of equity and citizens' acceptance.

The cities in Europe will have to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and they must rely on the whole ecosystem to support the transition towards a more sustainable mobility. An important part of the ecosystem is the automotive industry, which faces risks related to the regulatory environment, changing mobility landscape, charging infrastructure integration, market competition, and different economic factors. To address these risks, collaboration among stakeholders is crucial. EIT Urban Mobility organises a session during TMWC with relevant representatives from the Automotive industry and the public sector, aiming to:

1. Discuss the challenges, opportunities, fears, risks, and new business models arising.
2. Identify the gaps between the cities’ vision and the private sector objectives and enhance the collaboration between the regulators, the industry, the cities, and its citizens to achieve the common mission of decarbonisation and sustainable urban mobility.

Urban policy does not usually include time use as a key factor, and yet cities are constantly trying to influence it. By adding new and faster mobility routes, providing childcare that saves time to caregivers, or applying the famous 15-minute city concept which connects time and space, cities change the everyday life of their citizens. Time policies allow cities to innovate by placing time at the centre of the urban agenda.

PEARL: How Life-Sized Environmental Simulation Can Help your City’s Future Projects

09-11-2023 16:00 09-11-2023 17:00 Europe/Madrid PEARL: How Life-Sized Environmental Simulation Can Help your City’s Future Projects

This session aims to provide an overview of how PEARL (UCL's Person-Environment-Activity Research Lab) can help cities to understand person-environment interactions through its unique ability to simulate urban environments at 1-1 scale. This includes the ability to control its lighting, acoustic, physical and smell attributes so that we can better understand how these different features might affect diverse urban populations in any given project. We will demonstrate how we have improved a variety of urban projects thus far which have focused on the impact of different environmental stimuli on various user groups. We will invite participants to bring their own urban issues and project ideas to the table. Together, we will explore how we might address these issues or test ideas at PEARL.
