Transport as a source of complex social, economic and political conflicts.
One of the perhaps less overlooked challenges today is transport policy. Transport is at the same time a source of competitiveness, part of the quality of life, a major cause of climate change or a means of spreading and halting epidemics. Transport is becoming a residential, political and economic, land use issue at the same time. Today, technically, almost all transport problems can be solved. However, the social impact of transport is becoming increasingly interesting. But if we want to restart the economy, we need to travel between home and work. Redesigning transport infrastructure and systems takes longer. But the mobility habits and behavior of employees and schoolchildren can be influenced and regulated faster.
