We invite experts within mobility, sustainability and smart cities to play the Nordic Urban Mobility 2050 Futures Game at Nordic EV Summit 2019.

Join municipalities, companies and policy-makers to create future scenarios for mobility in Nordic cities. The aim of the game is to help plan and prepare for the future of mobility in Nordic cities and urban areas, and to encourage participants to create new Nordic project proposals that can be funded by Nordic Innovation.

You do not need any prior knowledge on games or futures thinking to participate in the game, but we encourage you to be an active player with an open mind.

Game background

Urbanisation is one of the key future megatrends in the Nordic region, just like in the rest of the world. By 2050, 66 percent of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas and is something we need to plan for also in the Nordics.

Mobility systems play an important part in ensuring that our growing urban areas will be liveable smart, and sustainable and we need to start thinking about how to develop them sooner rather than later. Based on research, in-depth interviews with mobility experts, and testing, Finnish service design company Hellon have together with Nordic Innovation developed the Nordic Urban Mobility 2050 Futures Game.

The game will be used as a conversation starter for municipalities, companies and citizens to help plan and prepare for future of mobility, and to encourage participants to create new Nordic project proposals that can be funded by Nordic Innovation. The game is developed as part of our Nordic Smart Mobility and Connectivity program to contribute to speeding up the transition to a more sustainable and connected mobile future in the Nordic region.
