Reconsidering Mobility

The first event for MSF 2023 on the theme Sustain Tomorrow Today will focus on the need to reconsider our mobility choices. We will look into the latest data relating to mobility and the impact of our current modes of transportation locally. We will also discuss the targets set by the EU to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and solutions across the EU which are applicable for our islands. A panel discussion will analyse some of the sustainable solutions and technologies being implemented by businesses to be greener. The session will conclude with a focus on individual actions for more sustainable mobility, viable for Malta.
