12 November - 18 November 2018
The International Forum on Sustainable Mobility will be taking place in Geneva and Annemasse on 15 and 16 November 2018. National and international mobility stakeholders – elected representatives, companies, research institutes – will be meeting in Annemasse – Archamps Technopole and Geneva to (re)discover and (re)think about tomorrow’s mobility, locally and globally. Conferences, round tables and field visits are on the agenda in several places in Greater Geneva, whose current and future transformations in terms of mobility make it an experimental territory with exceptional innovation.
This event is co-organized by Annemasse Agglo, the French government, UNITAR, the Geneva/France Metropolitan Cluster and the CARA (European Cluster for Mobility Solutions) with the support of the Ademe, the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Region, the 74th County Council, the Canton of Vaud and the Canton of Geneva.
