Bilbao, Spain

Following the success of the first edition of SUM Bilbao and the Declaration of Bilbao, this second edition will consolidate SUM Bilbao 21 as an international reference that will bring together experts and public authorities, who will share sustainable mobility solutions from a local perspective in order to respond to global challenges. All of this will take place in an ideal setting in which many opportunities will arise to connect with potential partners online and in-person.

There will be round tables, interviews and conferences with more than 60 speakers from different fields to debate the challenges, opportunities and strategies to consolidate sustainable urban mobility systems, structured around three key topics:

  • Energy Transition - a meeting point for the exhibition of solutions and debate revolving around the advances and challenges of energy transition and how companies, governments and residents are adapting to this transformation.
  • Governance and funding - a space for governments, companies and academics to share points of view in order to build public-private alliances that enable new mobility models to be generated that are more sustainable and viable in the long term.
  • Mobility, digitalisation and innovation - highlighting the role of new technologies and the digitalisation of services, as well as Big Data, in the development and consolidation of a people-centred mobility model. It also seeks to review the functionality of the digital world and its impact on the promotion of accessible, universal and sustainable mobility.

The conference will take place as a hybrid event (both online and in-person) on 6-7 October 2021.
