Concrete initiatives launched during Movin’On Summit, shaping the future of sustainable mobility

The Summit is a launch pad or a milestone for many initiatives led by Movin'On members and partners throughout the year.

For all participants, it is an opportunity to join working groups, to chart a roadmap, to put a project into practice or to launch an innovation.

Focus on some of the initiatives:

Movin’On Startup Booster

The members of Movin'On ecosystem are working with 12 high-potential startups from Europe, Africa and North America to boost their solutions and accelerate their bringing to market. During the Summit, they will present their innovations during "flash talks" to mobility decision-makers, creating a fertile ground for the identification of partnerships and concrete opportunities.

Movin’On Challenge Design

The theme of this year's global Challenge strongly resonates this year: "Respect: ending isolation and conquering the mobility divide". The Challenge will recognize three innovative mobility projects that can create a real breakthrough in promoting accessible and inclusive mobility solutions thanks to their original design.  The three projects will be unveiled as a world premiere at the Movin'On Summit on June 3.

Global Youth Challenge

Twenty-one young people have been chosen from Asia, Europe and North America for their interest in taking action on mobility. For 24 hours, in the spirit of a real hackathon they will take turns to identify concrete ideas to integrate their generation in sustainable mobility decisions. This challenge follows the survey1 that Movin'On conducted with Kantar, on the younger generation’s view on mobility, published in March 2021, in which they clearly expressed their willing to be part of the game.

Communities of Interest

During the Summit, these working groups, which bring together several ecosystem stakeholders on a chosen topic, will present the progress of their work and launch the next steps.

Quick overview:

  • ATD Quart Monde will share the results of its work on the inclusion of poor people in mobility decisions. The first working session brought together decision-makers and people experiencing poverty to move towards mobility for all.
  • Thales will present the results of the community of interest on attractiveness of public transport. The working group has identified four concrete solutions to address the barriers to public transport use. These solutions will be presented during the Summit. Next step will be their development and test in real conditions.

Partners’ announcements

Movin'On Summit is an opportunity for ecosystem partners to share their announcements with sustainable mobility stakeholders. Among the announcements to be made at this year’s Summit, Michelin will unveil an innovative solution designed to contribute to the decarbonization transport.
