During this Round Table Eugene Grüter, CEO Sweco Nederland and Bas Dubois, Managing Director Benelux Volvo Bus, discussed how we can transform the society to be more sustainable. The message was very clear; we cannot continue on the chosen path, it´s a dead end. Today the cars have conquered the streets and we are facing a lot of health problems due to pollution and the cost for society due to noise is enormous. There is also a lack of space for meetings and interactions. We have to put people first and cars second by lower speeds, multifunctional use of spaces and restrict access for cars in certain areas. We should aim for more urban wellbeing with a walkable city where you have everything you need 15 min away. We should create space to live in rather than just move throw. To make this happen we need to involve the people and give them ownership, momentum and support. We should look for opportunities together and we should work alongside to a sustainable future
