About the conference

Cities have many faces, they are a conglomerate of multiple entities compressed into a density that is highly challenging for the people who live and work there. High diversity in population, a multilingual environment, the gap between digital possibilities and the reality of the travel experience: The conference in Mumbai will investigate issues, concerns, problems, and solutions surrounding mobility and navigation in cities with high-density populations.

  • What can (information) design contribute towards a functioning city?
  • How does the design of products, communication, mobility and vehicles respond to mobility needs?
  • What information and communication strategies can help avoid mobility breakdown in extreme situations?
  • Are the current solutions designed for cities at breaking point?
  • How can Universal Design arrive at inclusive solutions that consider the needs of the whole population?
  • Can design be instrumental in seeking a holistic understanding of mobility problems?
Who should contribute?
