Unit 1: your task
Since this unit is called 'Introduction', your first task is to introduce yourself and your town or city. Please write a couple of sentences saying:
- where you're from and what you do
- what your experience is with urban mobility projects and/or impact assessments
- what major transport or mobility problems or challenges you currently see in your own city
- whether your city has published any of their impact assessments that they've conducted for urban mobility projects (please link to them)
Please post your introduction in the news forum under Unit 1: Introduction.
