Sustainability Workshops 1 - Socio-Technical Interactions in Transportation - Human x Vehicle x Mobile Technologies

31 October 2019, OzU - X, 09:30 - 16:00

We held a one-day workshop on urban transportation to take an interdisciplinary approach to different dimensions of sustainability, and develop new policy/solution recommendations. The workshop employed an innovative method to shed light on the different dimensions of urban transportation.

The Socio-Technical Interactions in Transportation Workshop analyzed the relationship between technology and society with a focus on urban transportation in Istanbul.  The workshop took place on October 31, World Cities Day, which made it all the more meaningful for us.

The event brought together different stakeholders involved in urban transportation, including automotive manufacturers, NGOs, local governments, academicians, mobile applications, and media, to reflect and debate on multi-dimensional problems and recommended solutions in a collective platform.
