According to a recent report by the OECD (2012), prepared by the International Transport Forum, compared to 2010 figures, global passenger volumes could grow as much as 2.5 times by 2050, and freight growth could be as much as four times. Despite efforts in promoting energy efficiency, the resulting CO2 emissions from the projected increase in passenger and freight transport are expected to be 2.5 times the 2010 figures.
This TEDx event will bring together a number of leading academics and experts whose work aims to contribute to a substantial reduction in emissions from transport by means of behaviour change, new technologies and new ways of travelling around our future cities.
