The way people get around their communities, shop for clothes, order delivery, or even look for places to stay when traveling is radically different from how people did those things a decade ago. Rapid technological advances in the areas of automation, new mobility, e-commerce, and the sharing economy are behind these behavioral shifts, and there’s no indication that the stream of innovations around these technologies is going to dry up anytime soon. If anything, things are just getting started, and what comes next could not only change transport choices or shopping habits, but fundamentally change urban landscapes forever. This all-day workshop is designed to help decision makers understand how new mobility, autonomous vehicles, e-commerce, and the sharing economy impact land use, transportation, urban design, and real estate. Government leaders need to understand the challenges and opportunities that these technologies could bring so they can harness them to achieve community goals around equity, health, the economy, and the environment. This workshop will help decision makers understand the issues surrounding emerging technology, the questions they need to ask, the stakeholders that need to engage, and the next steps they need to take to make sure their organizations are well prepared for the changes ahead.
