Humans have always been fascinated by the concept of mobility. For thousands of years, we have been pushing ourselves to discover faster and more efficient ways to travel, ultimately leading us to where we are today. Unfortunately, this advancement has caused as many problems as it has solved for humankind.
The rise in technological advancements is often accompanied by an increase in our environmental impact which is nowhere more apparent than in the field of mobility. Automobile emissions account for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions, with an estimated one-third of total urban air pollution coming from these sources alone. In addition, modern methods of transportation can be incredibly inefficient; the average American commuter spends nearly two hours per day stuck in traffic jams and congested roads.
It’s clear that something needs to change if future generations are expected to reap the benefits of our current advances in mobility technology. Fortunately, some passionate creators are working on solutions that can help us reduce our emissions while still allowing us access to convenient transportation methods.
One such documentary is “Beyond Moving,” which looks at how transport challenges can be addressed through a combination of innovative technologies and creative solutions across multiple industries and cities around the world. Through this film viewers will gain insight into how our consumption habits can be transformed through better designs, services and lifestyles that respect our environment and health standards alike.
