Movin’On Digital Meetings: the key takeaways

25 March 2021 – Movin’On held the 2nd edition of its Digital Meetings yesterday. This was an opportunity to imagine tomorrow’s mobility against the backdrop of the current pandemic, in which travel limits give the role of mobility even more meaning.

 

As well as the pleasure of coming together, the talent of journalist Asha Sumputh and the relaxing yoga exercises, here are the main takeaways from this encounter.

 

1- Young people are ready to join our movement for sustainable mobility - as revealed by the Movin’On survey by Kantar on post-COVID mobility with 5 of our members: Accenture, CGI, Kantar, Michelin and Microsoft. Generation Y & Z want sustainable mobility without sacrificing the notion of pleasure. And, above all, they are keen to be part of the change alongside companies, civil society and public authorities. Already bringing together all these different stakeholders, Movin’On therefore invites young people to jump aboard. First stop? The Movin’On Summit from 1-4 June 2021. More details to follow.

 

2- Nine initiatives have been launched to promote and enable Zero-Emission Mobility. They unite 150 contributors and 45 companies and organisations around 3 major challenges:

 

  • 96% of electric vehicle drivers are very satisfied with their vehicle, but less so with their experience of charging it. Developing electric mobility requires us to make charging easier, more accessible and faster. This means focusing on user experience based on data.
  • Developing vehicles that run on electricity for thousands of kilometres will require predictive maintenance, once again, using data. Optimising data usage is therefore primordial to move from a consumer product industry to a service offer, similar the one already available to automotive fleet managers.
  • To support Zero-Emission Mobility, we need viable economic models. Each development phrase requires significant investment. Initiatives in this domain therefore aim to pool assets and drive volumes to become profitable.

 

“Large-scale projects are the only way to build a solid value chain that is competitive at an international level. Such projects provide construction and industrial companies with more visibility on volumes and help attenuate the risks involved. This can’t happen without fully mobilising different stakeholders,” highlights Valérie Bouillon-Delporte, President of Hydrogen Europe.

 

3- Movin’On is reinventing the 2021 edition of its World Mobility Summit that will take place 1-4 June 2021 from Paris, Montreal and Singapore. This live 4-day event will combine interactive, immersive physical and digital experiences with world-famous speakers and an array of work sessions. To inspire each of us to take action. Register right here.

 

4- In the runup to the annual summit, Movin’On has launched its own podcast channel, Mobility Stories. Explorers, historians, sports personalities, sociologists, urban designers and politicians share their thoughts and open up new horizons.

The Digital Meetings were made possible with support from our partners and the organisations that joined our work groups:

 

  • Accenture, CGI, Kantar, Michelin and Microsoft for the Movin’On survey looking at mobility through the eyes of young people
  • For Movin’On LAB’s Zero-Emission Mobility workshops powered by Capgemini: Arval BNP Paribas Group, Avere-France, BNP Paribas CIB, Colas, EDF, Enedis, Faurecia, FCH JU, Hydrogen Europe, International Road, Federation, Le Ministère français de la transition écologique, Masternaut, Microsoft, PFA, Solvay and Symbio
