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 predicted to live in urban areas and this 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 intention of the game is to 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 identify areas for Nordic collaboration.
Towards joint solutions
The game has been developed as part of our Nordic Smart Mobility and Connectivity program to bring together various Nordic cities to plan a joint vision for 2050.
To develop a sustainable future of mobility, innovative solutions and partnerships between cities, companies and other stakeholders are needed.
During 2019, Nordic Innovation has run a series of game workshops for mobility experts and city representatives across the Nordic region.
