ConnectKaro: People, Transport, Cities
EMBARQ India, the World Resources Institute’s centre for sustainable transport in India, will be co-hosting CONNECTKaro, a conference on sustainable transport and urban development. Over 150 experts including government officials, policy makers and practitioners in the field of urban transport and urban planning will convene in Mumbai, India, to participate in this global gathering.
The theme for the workshop is "Karo" – to make it happen – to translate ideas into action. Scaling sustainable transport and ensuring it is integrated with land development is key for Indian cities as they grow in population, economically and spatially, over the next decade. The ideas of sustainable transport and integrated land development have been demonstrated in a few cities around the world. CONNECTKaro sessions will focus how these can be adapted and replicated in India.
EMBARQ India’s bi-annual Bus Karo Plus ‘Talking Transit’ workshop series will be part of this conference, held in partnership with the Brihanmumbai Electrical Supply and Transport Undertaking (BEST).
CONNECTKaro is part of a global series of events focused on sustainable transport that the EMBARQ network organizes and hosts, and is EMBARQ’s inaugural event in India. Dr. Jan Gehl world-renowned Danish architect and urban designer will deliver the key note address for the event.
