Women, young children, and persons with caring responsibilities who utilise urban areas and transportation systems have special needs for equal access to public places and urban transportation systems. The needs and perspectives of these groups are frequently overlooked in conventional urban planning.

When we design and deliver cities, what can we learn about how to meet the needs of women, children, and carers?

You are invited to join us for our hybrid public event discussing urban mobility through a gender lens, with an emphasis on how women experience public space and active transportation, building on the subject by looking at gender inequalities in urban cycling, public space, and care infrastructure.

For the Mobile Lives Forum, mobility is understood as the process of how individuals travel across distances in order to deploy through time and space the activities that make up their lifestyles. These travel practices are embedded in socio-technical systems, produced by transport and communication industries and techniques, and by normative discourses on these practices, with considerable social, environmental and spatial impacts.
