More about the TUMI Conference:
The severe social and economic consequences of the pandemic demand creative solutions that will enable cities towards a green and just recovery. At the same time, we are facing a global climate and environmental crisis. It is pivotal that we effectively couple the emergency response to COVID-19 and the Climate Crisis to ensure a climate-compatible and just future. A successful green recovery demands a mix of climate-sensitive and equitable policy approaches; quick and immediate action, as well as finance that is directed where funds are most needed. A clear path towards a post fossil and sustainable transport system is needed. Urban leaders need support to turn away from assets at risk such as fossil fuel-based transport in order to access resources to support a socio-economic revival. Identifying, evaluating and understanding future-proof pathways creates long term certainty for investors and decision makers. This year, TUMI premieres TUMI World, a fully interactive virtual platform with deep engagement and interaction opportunities. Participants will be able to fully immerse in timely discussions and will have the opportunity for face-to-face networking with leading experts from around the world.
Our aim is to spark conversations and open doors: We want to stray away from discussing incremental steps towards greener cities. Instead, we are looking for bold ideas and solutions for future urban mobility systems and how political commitments for a Green Recovery can be operationalized to realize these visions.
