RESPONSIBLE MOBIILITIES

is our approach to

the movement of people, ideas and things,

as well as the broader implications of these movements,

based on good judgment, prudence and sound thinking.

RESPONSIBLE

Sustainability generally only includes environmental protection and the promotion of social equity, as well as economic aspects.

Responsibility* is not limited to these issues, but rather integrates other important issues such as public health as well as the protection of the landscape and of cultural heritage.

MOBILITIES

“Mobilities” are a contemporary paradigm in the social sciences that explores the movements of people, ideas and things, as well as the broader social implications of those movements. (freely after https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Mobilities&oldid=672630515)

The purpose of this site is to disseminate information on how individuals, groups and societies can move, transport and think responsibly.
