Introduced by Emmanuele Forlani, Director of the Meeting for Friendship Amongst Peoples Foundation.
For the last few years the Meeting has been devoting a growing level of attention to mobility issues. Over the last decades unprecedented changes have occurred, both in terms of impact and of speed. The pandemic that has violently and strongly hit the planet has frozen mobility, as well as tourism. What kind of recovery will see the day? Which will be the future models for mobility and tourism? Will this be an opportunity to go back to local tourism? How will mobility “to and from” large cities will change? Will commuters travel by their own means or by public transport? How will public transport evolve?
