Video: Where might mobilities ‘go’?

We filmed this seminar with Dr Tara Duncan – thinking about mobility for a more sustainable future for travel, leisure and work.

Where might mobilities ‘go’?

With a growing history, the mobilities paradigm now blurs the boundaries between many disciplines in the social sciences and beyond.  This seminar – also the keynote for the 5th New Zealand Mobilities Symposium – reflects on the challenges of current conceptions of mobility and asks if using a resilience framework could focus thinking about mobility for a more sustainable future for travel, leisure and work.
