It is one thing to know the positive impacts of sustainable transport systems and the technologies that produce them, and quite another to understand the political negotiations and governance strategies that makes such outcomes possible.
We are looking at the importance of establishing regulations, using technology, designing or redesigning streets and public spaces, and improving management in order to transform urban transport.
Transforming Urban Transport (TUT) - The Role of Political Leadership
TUT is a research project hosted at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design (GSD) and funded by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF). This ongoing research initiative examines the spatial, political, and economic enablers and constraints on building sustainable urbanism. With a focus on transportation innovations, and with a view to the actions of citizens, state authorities, and private sector actors, our expanding research team is exploring the conditions, conflicts, and coalitions that have made cities around the world global leaders in transforming urban transport and advancing sustainability.
