The CEPALC (Economic Commission for Latin America and Caribbean) organizes the Cities Conference in Santiago de Chile from 16 till 19 October 2018. The Urban School is present at the event.
For the second edition, the urban mobility in Latin America and in the Caribbean will be at the heart of the debates gathering speakers come from all the region: representatives of cities and states, international organizations, NGO, national development agencies, companies and academics.
In the opening session, the discussion will concern more exactly the institutional aspects and the governance, and it through the role of the urban planning, some development directed on the public transportation and the metropolitan coordination in the promotion of the sustainable mobility. Two workshops, organized within the framework of the action plan France-CEPALC and supported by the Embassy of France in Chile, will allow to deepen the relative stakes in, respectively, the intelligent mobility, and the urban mobility and the sustainable energy, and by questioning it more specifically the question of the relations between public and private actors.
Finally, a training course dedicated to the governance of the sustainable urban mobility is jointly organized by the CEPALC and the Urban School of Sciences Po. The Urban School, represented by Pauline Emile-Geay (academic advisor of the Master Governing the Large Metropolis) and Charlotte Halpern (professor in the Master's degrees of the school), contributes to the exchanges from the activities led within the framework of the Cities and digital technology chair, the researches realized in the Center for European studies and comparative politics of Sciences Po (CEE) on the sustainable mobility and the transport, and finally, the acquired experience through the educational activities realized within the Master's degrees of the Urban School (teachings and capstones/group projects).
