Mobility is of fundamental importance to modern society, as people need access to resources. The amount of travelling we do has steadily increased since the mid-20th century.

If this trend continues, it will cause global social and health problems, and major environmental damage. It is now essential to rethink our transport systems and how they affect the area we live in.

Transport and Mankind explores the theme of human mobility from a socio-technological perspective, focusing on changes in individual and public transport, network efficiency, traveller comfort and safety, technological innovation and eco-friendly behaviour.
