Description

In this episode you'll hear from some trailblazing women in the sustainable mobility field: Monica Araya, Lead for Transport at Climate Champions, and Christina Bu, Secretary-General at the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association.

As always this conversation is brought to you by: Ligia Boueres, Nastya Koro, Sadie Martin and Galuh Rohmah.

Monica Araya is Lead for Transport at Climate Champions. As a clean mobility advocate (check out her recent TED talk here), she was also selected to join the first all-female expedition to Antarctica due to her commitment to advance climate solutions.

Christina Bu is Secretary General at the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association. With over 80,000 members, Norwegian EV is the world's largest driver of electric vehicle adoption. She is an expert and advocate on clean mobility, electric vehicles, and charging infrastructure.

According to a CIVITAS study published this year, women are recognised as being more likely to adopt sustainable travel behaviours than men. (Well done, ladies! 👏🏽 ) Their research also tells us that, compared to men, women's values tend to be more environmentally focused: women have more positive views of speed limits and congestion fees, for example. Why might this be? One interesting reason is that gender differences in socio-economic and demographic conditions prevent women from owning and using cars at the same rate that men do.

So, is green the new pink?  You might find out soon 😉
