About the symposium:

The world’s population is becoming increasingly urbanized, which is presenting huge mobility challenges for cities, given commitments to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. Cities with high levels of motorization are attempting to constrain and reduce traffic levels and move towards sustainable mobility and liveability; while cities in developing countries are faced with a stark choice of repeating the evolutionary mistakes of many of the cities in more developed countries, or ‘leapfrogging’ car-oriented mobility to directly develop cities around the principles of sustainable mobility and liveability. While cities are unique in their development paths, much can be learnt from the experience of cities that have faced the challenges of motorisation in past decades. HKU and UCL have internationally leading researchers addressing mobility challenges within this broader spatial and socio-technical context, in their own regions of the world. This initiative provides the opportunity first, to share existing methodologies and findings, and to produce new insights relevant both to academic and practitioner contexts; and second, to develop new knowledge through a joint research programme, and to incorporate the outputs into teaching programmes. Leading researchers of HKU, UCL, Nanjing University and Peking University will speak at this symposium. We welcome all academics, policy makers, industry partners, consultants, professional practitioners, students and other interested parties from across different sectors to join us in this symposium!
