Young Voices

Today, freedom of mobility is more important than ever to the lives and aspirations of young people. At the same time, they are acutely aware of the climate-related threats to our planet and their own futures. This is why they want and need mobility solutions that are practical and affordable, while also being seamless and eco-compatible.

In line with the Freedom of Mobility Forum’s mission to engage multiple audiences in fact-based discussions about the future of mobility, we are enhancing the debate by collaborating with universities and students. Further strengthening the voice of youth in the debate is crucial to challenging traditional assumptions and driving innovation in the mobility sector.

Engaging Young People and Universities

New for the 2024 edition of the live debate, the Forum is pleased to announce its collaboration with three leading universities and their students. This collaboration between the Forum, universities, and students will help shape the debate and further encourage the exchange of ideas among participants from around the world, notably with young generations.
