WORLD STREETS 2021 CLIMATE/SPACE/MOBILITY ACTION PLAN
Paris, 27 October 2020
In the context of this new collaborative program and as we start up, I have to say that I have the sinking feeling, but admittedly in some ignorance. . . that the telework, telecommuting, etc. guys may be way behind the climate curve. That is, quite possibly not quite up to the challenge of the times.
Proof of that would lie in the following:
1. Have the promoters of telework, telecommuting, distance work, etc. succeeded over the last couple of decades of making telemobility into something that really has a critical place in the mobility mix of a substantial portion of the population of any country?
2. How different are their recommendations and tools they are talking about and pushing today, from the mix of say a decade ago?
3. And if there is a tool gap, a strategy gap, what should we or others be doing to remedy it so as to bring us up to the highest 21st century level of competence — because we all do know that there is a real job to be done here.
Not to be rude. Just asking. And hoping to be surprised.
From Paris and teleworking today, yesterday and tomorrow, but feeling in my gut that I too should be doing better. Hence this collaborative learning project:
