THE 12 SOCIETAL THEMES WE HACK IN 2019
Getting our country moving, fast, clean and safe
We’re the so-called crossroads of Europe but the movement of goods and people is increasingly hobbled by congestion. Transport is also responsible for 20% of our total greenhouse gas emissions, it shortens our lives through air pollution and it kills more than 700 people a year through road accidents. Radical ideas for transport are required!

Create sustainable mobility solutions for the on-demand economy.

Digital mobility solutions for all
New digital mobility applications are popping up like mushrooms. But still too often, their benefits are experienced only by higher income, digitally experienced users. How can we make digital mobility accessible to our entire society, regardless of income, physical condition and age?
Mobility data management
Tons of mobility data are gathered daily by public and private organisations, on a mission to improve mobility۪. But the way in which this data is managed, is far from optimal and hampers fact-based decision making. What makes for a transparent and efficient data collection mechanism?
Mobility Round-up Session
The final Theme workshop on Day 1, where last wild card ideas are pitched and all teams are formed. Don't miss it.
On-demand mobility services
Today, customers can order mobility services where and when they like. Too bad decent air quality cannot be ordered as such. Shifts in e-commerce and sharing economy offer huge opportunities for developing sustainable mobility services. How can we marry on-demand mobility with our planet’s health?
