institute on cities of the future).

Watch all the interviews of this initiative on the flipbook #aCoffeeWithCarlosTavares:

  2. interview with Martha Delgado on “Changes in customer behaviour”
  3. interview with Lionel Zinsou on “Market divergence”
  4. interview with Ben Waber on “Digital transformation”
  5. interview with Philippe Bihouix on “Sharing economy”
  6. interview with Luc Julia on “Autonomous vehicles”
  7. interview with Chirine Etezadzadeh on “Connectivity”

Excerpts of the last dialogue on Connectivity:

Carlos Tavares: “With this permanent connectivity, we are losing the battle of privacy: users share their data in exchange for access to a service, without always measuring the impact properly. A data governance model must be invented to respect privacy while preserving our freedom of movement, especially for urban areas because mobility in the city has to be reorganised.”

Chirine Etezadzadeh: “I think it is very important to enable the people to become smart citizens and that requires a certain education. Privacy is a right. We need to think about intelligent transport systems and integrate the different mobility solutions in platforms, like Free2Move. We need coordinated solutions and this requires leadership from the municipalities.”

The dialogue between Carlos Tavares and the civil society will pursue next year, in a different form, around the following theme: “freedom of movement in a zero-carbon world”.
