Freedom of Mobility Forum announces agenda, panelists for March 29 live debate

An international panel of six selected to debate the environmental, social and financial costs of providing accessible, safe, and sustainable freedom of mobility

The Freedom of Mobility Forum, initiated by Stellantis and facilitated by Wavestone as a neutral third-party, announced the agenda and panelists for the March 29 live digital debate: “In a decarbonized world, will freedom of mobility be affordable to a happy few only?”

The live digital debate will be webcast starting at 2:30 p.m. CEST / 8:30 a.m. EDT and brings together a diverse range of representatives from business, youth, climate experts, civil society, labor and social dialogue for an open debate about the facts, challenges and solutions for preserving freedom of movement for all in the context of climate change and a decarbonized world. The resulting exchanges are expected to be lively, as the participants maintain a passion to preserve freedom of mobility for everyone – but present different visions.
