UITP Latin America hosted the third edition of the Latin America Experience last week. As a hybrid gathering, the 2022 edition attracted participants to São Paulo, Brazil on 6 and 7 June, while those joining online enjoyed the event on 8 and 9 June.
After years of uncertainty, 2022 offers a great opportunity to learn from the ongoing challenges in mobility on a global scale. The UITP Latin America Experience presented the most important trends for mobility in the region: from the pandemic and an energy crisis, to the changes in mobility needs as the world develops to a new normal.
Mobility in Latin America is facing major challenges and gathering audiences physically and on-line, stimulated discussions and analysis of local situations. Among the speakers were true thought leaders on mobility in the region that put their knowledge in the context of the entire continent, which sees 200 million people use public transport every day.
The more than 50 speakers included Néstor Roa of the Inter-American Development Bank, Secretaries of mobility and transport and high-level officials of Rio de Janeiro, Bogota, Ciudad de Mexico, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Santiago, Lima, and ministers from Colombia, Ángela Orozco and Chile, Juan Carlos Muñoz.
The result was a large mosaic of different cities and operations. Latin American cities are increasingly dynamic, requiring public transport to respond to more complex situations to remain the backbone of urban mobility.
The digital event in Latin America in 2022 brought a broad reflection on public policies and initiatives of the sector in the field of resilience, decarbonisation, financing, new technologies, digitisation, and perhaps most importantly: people. To continue improving the quality of life in cities policy makers will have to rely on more and better public transport.
The recording of the event will be available on the Latin America platform for the next 30 days (until 14 July). Those that weren’t registered for the event can still register to watch the recordings here.
