Imagining a transition to sustainable mobility: the MoTMo

Emissions, traffic jams and air pollution in our cities derive from the interactions of people, companies, institutions, in global and interconnected systems. The consequences of actions – such as the introduction of a new product or service – or political decisions are therefore usually very difficult to control in such complex systems.

The Mobility Transition Model (MoTMo) is a tool designed to explore plausible social and technological scenarios for a transition to sustainable mobility. It is based on a detailed representation of individuals and their mobility needs and simulates a wide spectrum of indicators in the potential evolution of mobility demand.

This meeting shows how the MoTMo works, what is the approach and how it was developed by the Center of Excellence for Global Systems Science.

Sarah Wolf – Senior Researcher at the Global Climate Forum (GCF) – will discuss with the participants how the data can help to make more informed decisions and how this approach can be useful in their decision-making processes
