Today, freedom of mobility is even more important than ever to the lives and aspirations of young people. At the same time, they are acutely aware of the climate-related threat to our planet and their future. This is why they want and need mobility solutions that are practical and affordable, while also being seamless and eco-compatible.
Given 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 has extended invitations to select universities and their students. This collaboration between the Forum, universities, and students will help shape the debate and encourage the exchange of ideas around the world.
The Forum has engaged several individuals who proudly represent the interests of young people. They include:
Sobel Aziz Ngom, co-founder of CJS (Consortium Jeunesse Senegal), an entrepreneurial alliance of youth organizations, represents the interests of young people as a member and co-chair of the Forum’s Advisory Board.
Gibson Kawago, founder of WAGA (We Are Green Africa), a provider of sustainable and reliable lithium-ion battery solutions and a United Nations Young Leader for Sustainable Development Goals program, is a member of the Forum’s Panel of Experts.
This approach of engaging younger generations in the live debate is a pillar of the Freedom of Mobility Forum. We look forward to introducing you to our partner universities and students!
