Colloquium Victims of Mobility

Under the title "victims of mobility" this colloquium aims to reflect on the current model of mobility.

To the victims of traffic accidents we must add the victims of pollution. The electric vehicle is presented as the savior, but without taking into account the pollution it generates at source and even the repercussions it has on the countries where the raw material is obtained.

All of this shows the urgency of putting on the table the need for a paradigm shift, a change that also has implications for the mobility model we currently have.

In this sense, we must tend towards 0.0 mobility. That is, with zero victims, zero emissions and in which the sustainability of the planet prevails by betting on local products or km0 to avoid unnecessary travel.

The coronavirus pandemic has shown urgent aspects that have been insistently demanded and that can no longer wait. Climate change threatens more pandemics, massive migrations to the city, which presents an unsustainable scenario.

Mobility is a key issue in this regard and that is why we propose this colloquium that aims to broaden the view and reflect on the ethical implications of the current mobility model and reveal the different victims it generates.
