Sustainable Transport and Shared Mobility
Understand the environmental impact of road transport
The transition to low emission road transport is gathering pace as the world battles to control emissions-induced climate change and urban air quality issues.
It is vital that when we make decisions about how to travel from A to B that we consider the most sustainable and appropriate modes of transport, and shared mobility is quickly becoming part of the solution.
This three-week course is designed to give you a solid foundation into sustainable shared mobility transport as you explore the key technologies, trends, and policies that are enabling this transition.
Explore the different shared mobility modes of transport
Shared mobility includes public transit, automobile-based modes such as carsharing, micromobility such as bike-sharing, and commute-based modes such as carpooling.
On the course, you’ll explore different shared mobility modes of transport, as well as an awareness of their applications and limitations.
This understanding will help you examine how shared mobility fits into the current transport model and how policy can affect the uptake of its use. You’ll also learn what the future may hold for each shared mobility technology.
Gain invaluable insights on sustainability from the experts at Cenex
You’ll gain an overview of the trends, policies, and innovations in the industry as well as an introduction to city planning. This knowledge will help you see how you can apply shared mobility in the real world.
Guided by the experts at Cenex (The Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies), you’ll finish the course with an understanding of how shared mobility can reduce transport emissions and is a positive step towards sustainable transport.
Learning on this course
You can take this self-guided course and learn at your own pace. On every step of the course you can meet other learners, share your ideas and join in with active discussions in the comments.
What will you achieve?
By the end of the course, you‘ll be able to...
- Evaluate what shared mobility is and how it can reduce transport emissions.
- Compare different shared mobility modes of transport as well as an awareness of their applications.
- Reflect upon the current limitations and benefits of each shared mobility technology and what the future may hold.
- Discuss how shared mobility fits into the current transport model and how policy can affect the uptake and deployment of shared mobility.
- Identify the different types of mobility hubs and how they should be deployed in order to maximise uptake of shared mobility.
Who is the course for?
This course is designed for anyone interested in sustainability and the ongoing change in the shared mobility sector.
It will particularly benefit you if you have a basic understanding of transport technologies.
