The TInnGO Multi stakeholders' Forum, taking place on 22 October 2020 is a platform to discuss gender smart mobility in the transport sector. TInnGO stands for Transport Innovation Gender Observatory and explores transport as not just a means of physically moving people from one point to another, but also as a potential means towards the creation of gender equality. TInnGO is a 3-year research project funded via the EU's HORIZON 2020 Programme and aims to create a framework and mechanisms for a sustainable game change in European transport through a transformative strategy of gender and diversity sensitive smart mobility.
Key concepts in the TInnGO project include smart mobility and introducing gender and diversity mainstreaming. A view of gender in smart transport that connects the TInnGO roadmap, on how this can progress current debates and create a paradigm shift towards greater inclusivity in the transport sector.
Scientific evidence will be presented during the Forum with a discussion about how inequalities are created and furthermore, the Forum will address paradigm shifts in education, employment, technological innovations, and entrepreneurship as arenas for change and inclusion. It will present which strategies /policies and interventions have been most successful in increasing diversity, and where more could be done, and whether this is having any impacts on the wider transport system.
During the TInnGO Multi stakeholders' Forum, intersectional approaches to understanding mobility will be the focus of stakeholders, considering the TInnGO observatory and 10 national hubs in 13 European countries. Intersectionality in relation to COVID-19 revealed questions on differences in everyday life also related to mobility options or the lack of them. The way forward opening a policy window for Gender Smart Mobility in the provision of proximity between stakeholders at both regional and European levels and to contribute with new knowledge in the design and implementation of sustainable future strategies of transport and future European policies.
