Ford Motor Company and the experts who attended the “City of Tomorrow Symposium” in San Francisco on August 16th envision a more holistic, organic and inter-connected future powered by a transportation operating system and shaped by “total multi-modal mobility.”
They all agree that – in order for such a positive future, we need to challenge the present we live in.
What if a city moved with the rythms of its inhabitants?
Crowd-sourced ebikes, fully autonomous cars, an increase in electrical vehicles, more access to mass transportation and more green space could mean that cities can become safer, more productive and healthier to live in….. and easier to get around in.
The one-day event, focused conversations on three pillars:
At day’s end, we reflect on our city and our changing roles within it. In the City of Tomorrow, culture is a conversation – in public and open to all.
The day’s work begins. In the City of Tomorrow, work is not a place or obligation. It is a question. What will you build for, and with, your neighbors today?
Morning in the City of Tomorrow. We stir. Energy fuels us, but it need not come from a pump or plug. It is our food, our inspiration, our spark.
Venturing forth, we join our fellow citizens in the City’s public life. Here we explore the circulatory system of the city and its component infrastructures: not just roads and bridges, but also green spaces, town squares and everywhere in between.
What’s the opportunity for the future of cities that our children will live in?
- No accidents
- No emmisions
- No congestion
- Universal access to mobility
We’ll take that!
