- June 11: Integrating new mobility solutions in the public transport governance framework
Y4PT Breathable Cities World Campaign experience in Colombia’s capital city of BogotáSummary of the speech for Summit website (max. 900 characters incl. spaces)
The key premise of the Y4PT Breathable Cities World Campaign is that on a same route, an individual’s exposure to, dose of and response to an agent of air pollution might significantly vary depending on what mode of transport is chosen for being conveyed. By involving more cities over time, the Y4PT Breathable Cities World Campaign will stand up as a better tool to benchmark urban transport systems around the world in terms of air quality and human health. Results should provide scientific evidence in order to take actions that lead to the implementation of zero-emissions mobility solutions in our cities.
