Event description

Description

Transportation is key to movement, access, connections. It is a critical part of NYC’s economy and culture. And it’s currently going through another big evolution.

Havas, in partnership with NYC Media Lab, launched an open call for NYC universities to imagine the future of transportation in cities, and the role technology can play to support upcoming needs.

We’ve hit a breaking point with congestion and our infrastructure. Data suggests that boomers and millennials alike are gravitating toward cities at an unprecedented rate At present, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050, two-thirds of us will (Siemens, 2018). With all these people coming and staying in NYC, how can we keep our transit systems up to par, support the growing needs of this growing population, and ensure businesses can still prosper so those benefits of being at the epicenter of culture and access are not diminished?

Attend the Happy Hour event to learn about the open call, meet leadership from Havas, and explore how you can get involved and build the next generation of transportation technologies.
