We recognize that mobility is essential to our economy, planet and quality of life. With looming conflicts, energy transition and climate change we need to make choices that will make us better ancestors of future generations. The current way we plan and organize the way we move from A to B is outdated and doesn't meet future requirements and needs. Now is the time to explore more desirable futures for the world we want to live in.
The Lab of Thought is the platform that connects leading academia and businesses from around the globe to rethink the way we want to build our future cities. With education, sandboxes and real life experimentation we strengthen the thinking and exchange of knowledge to drive change and make impact in the real world.

There is an urgent need to rethink our thinking about mobility. The current expectations on mobility innovations are often rooted in the advances in digital technology and are generally greeted with eager optimism. Unfortunately what is often overlooked are the unmet needs of humans and our planet. The Lab of Thought attempts to explain mobility from this standpoint, so we as individuals and as societies lessen our impact on the planet, now and in the future.
