The government is going to ban us from flying! This is a proposal that will not please everyone but it will have the merit of reducing our carbon footprint. This proposal is as ambitious as that of the second chamber of the Dutch parliament that proposed the ban on Amsterdam-Brussels flights.

On Thursday March 28th, our #1 Impact Session about mobility welcomed Jan Borré, Founder and Chief Mobility Architect at Via-Mobile.be and Frédéric Pairoux, Mobility Manager at RTBF. Sessions were moderated by Marieke van Winkelen, Country Manager at Greenfish. How to make the shift from a car dominated system to more sustainable means of transportation?

How can they lead the change towards commuting with a lower environmental footprint? How can they encourage employees to move away from the current car reign and opt for multi modal solutions instead?
