In our February webinar, I spoke with Dan Sturges: transport designer, entrepreneur, teacher, and visionary, who discusses how we need to overhaul the way we move ourselves and are cargo around the surface of the planet.
Though we all want simple solutions, none exist. Currently, transportation is redundant, heavy, bulky, fossil-fuel-reliant, and unaffordable in every sense of the word. But what can be done to invoke things like mass transit, ride-sharing, micro-rentals, and small, light, and inexpensive urban transportation? What can be done to reduce car ownership — or at least the total number of miles driven? How can we encourage walking and bicycling? What about rethinking how and where we live?
