TSU Series: A life course approach sheds light on how people's lives, structural contexts, and social change can result in new or different mobility practices. Drawing from a range of disciplines, life course research points to the importance of particular life course events as ‘triggers’ and ‘constraints’ for different types of mobility. This approach offers important insights as socio-demographic changes (e.g. ageing population), environmental concerns (e.g. climate change and air pollution) and equity issues challenge us to rethink the current systems of transportation. In this series of seminars, we will explore the insights that can be gained from a life course approach in order to better understand current and future mobility needs, and opportunities to move towards low carbon, and equitable systems of mobility.
