The impact of the car is not just tailpipe emissions; it’s much broader. So, how do we envision a green future with cars? Is that compatible: sustainability and cars?

On Wednesday, January 25th at 5 PM CET, Dr. Paul Nieuwenhuis, a self-styled ‘automotive philosopher,’ will discuss how we got here - from mass production to environmental impacts - and how we can move to more sustainable and green models.

Nieuwenhuis has a background in automotive consultancy and academia, working with the Centre for Automotive Industry Research at Cardiff Business School in Wales, UK. His publications focus on the motor car’s environmental impact and possible solutions.

Questions we will discuss include:

  • How does the automotive industry work?
  • What are its environmental impacts?
  • What is the importance of building a relationship with your car?
  • Which possible future scenarios exist?

TREASURE (leading the TRansition of the European Automotive SUpply chain towards a circulaR futurE) is a research project where Edgeryders is creating a community-driven model of addressing social aspects related with circular design practices. We want to develop new knowledge on how circular economy plays out in society, economy and everyday life, the points of view of the people directly affected by circular economy.
