Round Table on Urban Insights and Mobility

Featured image

Join the Swedish Chamber Executive Round Table discussion featuring Bas Dubois (Managing Director Benelux Volvo Bus) and Eugene Grüter (CEO Sweco Netherlands) on Urban Insights and Mobility.

When: Tuesday June 15
What time: 14.00 – 15.00

Greener cities

More than 70 percent of people in European cities breathe dangerous air, according to the European Environment Agency and 1 million deaths occur annually due to physical inactivity in Europe, states the World Health Organisation. The key to a healthier, more productive, greener and less polluted city could be a new planning and design strategy based on the idea of shared speed in urban space.

The pandemic has given us new perspectives and revealed the flaws in street space distribution and public space as it disrupted people’s travel behavior, compelling us to work from home, move shorter distances, and explore the city on a more local scale.

At the same time, about 70 percent of the global population – an astonishing 7 billion people – are expected to live in cities by 2050. With air pollution causing damage to human health and ecosystems, large parts of the population will not live in a healthy environment.

Speakers

Eugene Grüter
Grüter will share the  outcome of the new Urban Insight report where Sweco envisions proximity, density, and shared speed as paths for transforming streets into incubators for health and well-being. “A core strategy of streets as health incubators entails treating the city’s various modes of transportation, from driving to walking, as more equal, a planning and design strategy that we call shared speed,” says David Lindelöw, transport planner at SWECO in Gothenburg, Sweden, and one of the report’s authors.

Bas Dubois
Dubois (Managing Director Benelux at Volvo Bus): "Just imagine a city with zero emission vehicles only; clean and silent. Since almost two decades Volvo buses is developing electromobility products and services for cities and in this presentation and Bas Dubois will take you on the journey Volvo buses has made and share the insights and experiences gained.”

Tech Talent

Explore how to attract, retain and manage tech talents

With the acceleration in digital, the demands on technology — for
speed, flexibility, reliability, security, and value — have radically
increased. For company leaders reviewing how to transform their
organizations, one tricky question is emerging: Where do I find the
people to do all the work? Companies have to hire the best, but that
won’t be enough. They’ll also need to rethink how they reskill and
upskill their people. People are the most important factor for a
company’s growth, especially in its early stages of development. How to
find the right people and how to get a better understanding on how to
create great teams?

SPEAKERS LINE UP:
Dr. Cara Antoine, Managing Director Digital Transformation at IG&H
Bernie van Leeuwen, Managing Director SKF Netherlands
Rik Zuidmeer, Partner and member of the International Leadership Team of Mercuri Urval
Jeffrey Kenens, Partner TK
Moderator: Rens Goudsmit, Head of TK Tech & Attorney at law
