One of the toughest environmental and social challenges of our time is managing the increasing global demand for mobility of people and goods, while at the same time mitigating and eliminating the negative effects thereof.

As emissions of both air pollutants and CO2 is on the rise globally – and congestion runs rampant - how can Hong Kong contribute to both decarbonize the sector as a guiding example for others, and provide smart, convenient and clean mobility for its own inhabitants?

Join our Curator Alexander Mastrovito, Head of Sustainable Transport Solutions at Scania, for an actionable and energizing discussion as we address a few of the following questions:

Is Hong Kong able to make a timely change towards a sustainable transport system?
Does Hong Kong have what it takes to become the next global leader in sustainable mobility?
What are the opportunities and challenges in our way?
What is the role of Hong Kong's transport sector in the globacl decarbonization effort?
What creative solutions and collaborations would it take us to get there?
How can Hong Kong adapt to a landscape of new disruptive technologies in Mobility?
