INFRASTRUCTURE SHAPES OUR LIVES. ISN’T IT TIME WE HAD A SAY?
Our existing physical, social, economic, technological and institutional INFRASTRUCTURES overwhelmingly favor private car ownership and private car use. This SYSTEM sustains itself at great cost to our households, to our communities, and to our planet. This SYSTEM drives the climate crisis, perpetuates inequality, and is hostile to community. The INFRASTRUCTURES are rooted in racism and in social and environmental injustice.
At the Shared-Use Mobility Center 2021 National Shared Mobility Summit, we ask: “How might we shift the SYSTEM? The WHOLE SYSTEM!”
Each week in July, we’re going to start conversations about how to precipitate the BIG SHIFT in a focus area. We’ll spotlight success, and find early lessons—innovations that can scale—to help build a shared, equitable, and sustainable future. Our sessions and speakers will share ideas on how to structure a system that actually works for our households, our communities, and our planet.
