TUMI2023 Conference: Feminist Voices in Transport











Kongresshalle am Zoo, White Hall

At the pre-ITF TUMI2023 Conference we look forward to celebrating the 5th anniversary of Women Mobilize Women with you! We want to use this occasion to shine a spotlight on the necessity to plan mobility projects and measures that account for the intersectional realities of all members of society. We know that when women and other marginalized groups are consulted, in response transport systems are more sustainable, efficient, safe, and responsive to diverse needs and local challenges.

TUMI2023 will bring together over 100 leading feminist thinkers and activists, high-level government officials, development bank representatives, academics, and civil society members to discuss achieving a gender-transformative mobility transition where no one is left behind.

Through inspiring talks, discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities, the conference aims to elevate ambition and action for Feminist Mobility to new levels. Registration is open, and you are invited to join the conversation and help shape the future of transportation.

A separate registration is mandatory: Registration - TUMI Conference 2023 - Feminist Voices in Transport - TUMI2023 Conference (
