Online Workshop: How to facilitate the transition towards sustainable urban logistics?

Monday, November 28th, 2022

The DUT Partnership steps up the game to tackle urban challenges. Through research and innovation and capacity building, it enables local authorities and municipalities, service and infrastructure providers, and citizens to translate global strategies into local action. It develops the skills and tools to make urban change happen and boost the urgently needed urban transformations towards a sustainable future with enhanced quality of life in cities.

Objectives of this webinar:

  • Sharing views from city authorities and logistics practitioners on challenges and opportunities they face when implementing sustainable urban logistics
  • Identify opportunities the Driving Urban Transitions (DUT) programme can support for implementation of innovative solutions of urban logistics (priorities, type of projects, type of consortium etc.)

Who should join: Anyone who is interested in implementation innovative logistics solutions in cities including but limited to:

  • Cities authorities
  • Logistics innovative solutions providers and potential buyers
  • Researchers
  • City networks and organizations for cities’ climate action

Format of the workshop: The workshop will consist of presentations and group discussions. Presentations will provide examples of current practices for inspiring discussions. Participates will be divided into several groups and each of the group will consist of various stakeholders: city authorities, logistics practitioners, researchers etc. Each group will consist of about 12 participates and have a moderator to guide discussions report key outcomes. Participates will be automatically assigned into different groups. Online survey using SLIDO will be open during the workshop to collect additional inputs.
