AET COVID-19 Conversations

In line with its role to advance transport planning through networking and the exchange of ideas, information and opportunities, AET has launched an initiative to support its members through the current COVID-19 Pandemic.

On this page we will be discussing the impacts of COVID 19 with members from across Europe giving you a unique and wide-ranging pan European view of ongoing developments during the current crisis. When relevant, information on selected countries across the World will also be posted on this page.

How is COVID 19 affecting daily life, travel and mobility patterns and how will these be impacted in the future in a post COVID world?

On this page AET will put interviews with AET members throughout Europe to get an overview on how the COVID pandemic is affecting daily life and transport in particular. 

Next to that AET is inviting members to share evidence and experiences in respect of COVID-19, the mobility and transport sector impacts, current responses and plans and proposals for future recovery. This evidence will be reviewed, classified and posted on this page which will be regularly updated.

You can find the invitation to AET members to provide information via this link.

Upcoming Webinars (AET membership required)

  • Thursday 30th July 2020: Understanding, Shaping and Planning for the New Normal

    We will have two speakers to present their findings from recent work followed by a moderated question and answer session. COVID-19 has made profound impacts on travel so the webinar will start by looking at who has been affected and what this means for transport going forward. Looking to the future there are many uncertainties so the webinar will also encourage debate about how each future scenario will play out and what that means for future transport prospects.

    • Joseph Molloy, ETH Zurich, Switzerland – Changing Activity Spaces and Mobility Patterns amongst Swiss Population Segments
    • Johnny Ojeil, Director, Arup, UK – Social Distancing during COVID19 and its implications for transport planning
