The concept of mobility is central to our lifestyles. We travel, shop and interact with people in altogether new ways, making it even more important to ensure that the future of mobility is sustainable and inclusive.
Today, transportation accounts for about one third of Sweden’s total greenhouse gas emissions, a stumbling block on Sweden’s road to becoming a zero net greenhouse gas emitter. Investing in renewable energy and fossil-free transportation calls for a shift in technology, new ways of doing business, a new regulatory framework, and above all — a total change in people’s mindset of what constitutes mobility.
By encouraging innovation, regulation and investment to work together towards the same goal, Sweden has become one of the frontrunners of new mobility solutions.
In the exhibition you learn about historic changemakers, such as Aina Wifalk’s modern walker for people with disabilities and Volvo’s three-point safety belt, and failed experiments. Discover how Swedes carry their babies, protect their heads when biking, automate mining exploration, and move freely in nature even when they live with physical disabilities.
