How cities are detoxing transportation
People around the world are demanding clean air — and cities are starting to respond, says electrification advocate Monica Araya. She takes us on a world tour of urban areas that are working to fully electrify their transportation systems over the next decade, shifting to emission-free motorcycles, cars, buses, ferries and beyond. See what a future without the internal combustion engine could look like — and what it will take to get there.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference.
Karim Elgendy, Chatham House & Martina Juvara, International Society of City and Regional Planners, explain why the UK’s planning system tool could be central to integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation in cities.
The share of the world’s population living in cities is expected to rise to 80% by 2050, from 55% now.
