About the session

Innovations aimed at decarbonising urban mobility are often focused on technology and market readiness. Integrating the innovations into society in a way that supports social justice while addressing unintended consequences is challenging, but vital to de-risking mobility investments and their successful adoption. 

Through an introduction to SoRA (Societal Readiness Assessment), the workshop exemplifies a process of reflexive assessment to recognize how socially responsive a green mobility innovation is. It further informs decision-making to strengthen zero-carbon adoption through cross-sector collaboration.

Participant takeaways:

  • A hands-on experience of how to use SoRA-Dash to evaluate, critique or support green mobility research, design and innovation processes.
  • Insights into the value of cross-sector collaboration in assessing and de-risking green mobility investments.
  • Dialogue that builds capacity for a different way of thinking about and applying human-centred design.
