This presentation on ‘mobility justice’ is a way to talk about different relations around mobility in Umeå. And to highlight the power differentials that come into play in any form of mobility, and the different affordances that different people are able to make use of, or appropriate, in becoming mobile (or not).
How can the municipality address justice issues around public transportation? Is a smart city infrastructure fair? What are the socio-cultural norms that affect transport use? What are the common perceptions of public vs. private transport? Who’s responsibility is it to care and maintain transport infrastructure? What about equal access? These are some of the questions that will be taken up during the event.
This presentation is brought to you by interaction design students of Umeå Institute of Design as part of a 5-week course on ethnography and co-creation. The event will be held in English and is open to the public. And no prior preparation is needed to attend, just your enthusiasm to engage with the topic.
Note: The student presentations will remain accessible as an exhibition till the end of the day.
