Living labs can be a helpful tool for urban sustainability transitions. The co-development approach can help forming coalitions that enable the transformative change to address climate change in cities and support sustainable and inclusive urban development. Sustainable mobility plays a key role in this as it plays a key role in decarbonizing cities and providing access for all to economic opportunities, education, healthcare and social activities. Urban change makers can use the living labs approach to highlight the benefits of innovations and interventions and test the validity in collaboration with authorities, academia, civil society, private sector and end-users. This session will provide insights on the living laboratory model and examples of sustainable transitions in urban mobility.
The goal of the session is to explore the ways that multiple stakeholders and agencies organize and investigate living labs to find solutions for urban issues. The will bring all relevant aspects of Living labs together into a coherent approach for testing innovative sustainable mobility solutions in urban Living Labs and will highlight interlinkages and priorities in the planning and implementation process.
