Universal mobility is a basic human right. Safe, comfortable, affordable and accessible transportation is essential for living healthy, happy, independent lives. Shifting how we design and program mobility systems requires approaching them in a holistic manner that connects the dots between transportation, equity, human rights, and climate justice.
This webinar explored the basic tenets of what it means to view mobility through a human rights lens and how mobility systems intersect with accessibility rights and gender equity. Speakers from community organizations, including Ecopath Planning, Live Educate Transform Society (LET’S) and Women in Urbanism Canada, shared their approaches and experiences working in mobility from the perspective of human rights, accessibility rights, and gender equity.
