In the first imeceLAB challenge, we start an open innovation process for young people on ‘Smart and Sustainable Urban Mobility’ together with our main partner, the Dutch Consulate.

While the levels of mobility from travel for business, health, and socializing to mobility for migration has been on the rise on one hand, the increasing “immobility” on the other has become a social challenge. At imeceLAB, we focus on the needs of people from diverse economic, social and cultural groups, who are largely exposed to the changing climate of the daily flux of the cities. We do so by bringing individuals and organizations from various backgrounds around the same challenge.

The cities of modern times are facing a major challenge. Increased movement due to rapid growth of urban population, growing demand for transportation services, the rise of car ownership worldwide, and changing sectors put a strain on cities. Urban populations are looking for ways to get “smarter” in their daily movements even though they may not have the social, economic, physical, and political means to do so.

We prepared a ten week curriculum and training sessions using a human centered design approach for our imeceLAB community. We will develop solutions focusing specifically on low-carbon mobility and sustainable urban transportation, mobility innovations, and inclusive mobility under the general theme “Smart and Sustainable Urban Mobility”, with creative perspectives of the young people.
