Mar Santamaria and Pablo Martinez, co-founders of 300.000 km/s, presented ‘Embarriados‘, a project developed in collaboration with Cotec Foundation, at Casa Seat (Barcelona).
This research project seeks to provide new knowledge about the relationship between city, mobility and urban inequality to support the formulation of public policies and avoid the potential risks of social segregation resulting from decarbonisation. Amid a climate crisis, energy supply problems and lifestyle changes (teleworking, e-commerce, e-learning) are reducing daily commuting. The mobility decrease reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves health and increases collective well-being, but it also has a negative effect. Reduced daily mobility reduces social mix and increases the risk of vulnerabilities.
