8. Description of the Campus:
The New Urban Agenda has produced a broad consensus around the objective of a shift towards more liveable cities that are inclusive, just, democratic, tolerant, prosperous and healthy. In order to achieve this, we must rethink existing urban models and make fundamental changes across a wide range of dimensions that form the basis of the right to the city. This Urban Thinkers’ Campus (UTC), The Transition to Liveable Cities: The Post-Car City, approaches these challenges from the perspective of mobility, and our point of departure is that shifting to more sustainable models of urban mobility can produce cities with more public spaces, with cleaner air, with fewer accidents, with greater access to mobility, and with higher levels of overall well-being. The objective of this UTC is to discuss and identify urbanization and mobility strategies capable of delivering Liveable Cities, with special emphasis on implementation involving all relevant stakeholders.
