Global New Mobility Coalition

The Opportunity we Set to Capture:

Deployed in the presence of supportive policy frameworks, shared, electric, and automated vehicle technologies have the potential to promote human well-being. Combined and coordinate in the right ways, they can lead to reduced emissions consistent with climate

goals, reduce local tail pipe pollution and improve human health, and forge more affordable and accessible mobility for all.

Our Mission:

Promote and pilot public and private sector governance frameworks that can improve human mobility benefits through shared, electric, and automated mobility technologies (SEAM). Our theory of change: Research shows that SEAM solutions, when integrated, can contribute to sustainable mobility for all. However, the glide path to an appropriate enabling environment remains unclear with uptake of these technologies just beginning. Therefore, there is an acute need to craft and experiment with new governance approaches and tools. These can be developed through commitments and partnerships that are jointly shaped by public and private sector stakeholders. A coalition comprised of an active and diverse multi-stakeholder community is better positioned to drive a balanced and credible transition to a SEAM future, than individual actors.

Our Efforts Include:


  1. Reinforce and communicate a comprehensive and positive vision for climate, the environment and socio-economic benefits of SEAM for cities and the Mobility sector;

  2. Share and pursue principles and governance best practices to SEAM challenges through a neutral platform;

  3. Co-design governance through multi-stakeholder engagement, localized experimentation and dynamic implementation-evaluation approach;

  4. Communicate lessons, scale best practices;

  5. Advance and support actionable governance solutions at the city, state, and national levels;Collaboration recipe and oversight: The coalition is primarily comprised of North American, EU, and Asian partners from the public, private, third, and academic sectors.

Our Values Are:

Transparency and Explainability; Chatham House Rules, Safe Space; Accountability and Efficiency; Diversity and Inclusiveness

GNMC members harness their relative advantages for propelling complementary knowledge to-action through two types of workstreams:

(I) Core projects, when we co-design new projects led by C4IR;

(II) Member initiated projects, when we support and enhance each other’s (mini-) projects that are marketable (blogs, videos, infographics, public letters etc.).

Ad-hoc “shout-outs” will be our way of communicating project ideas that will later be evaluated and prioritized primarily based on GNMC member interest. If there is an alignment with GNMC mission and at least two members express an interest to be actively involved, that member-project will be considered by the GNMC steering committee.

Member Type and Commitments:

Member: Nominate at least one expert to help guide GNMC portfolio projects by providing regular input as the projects develop through attendance in at least two meeting (in-person or virtual) per calendar year and participation in one project (e.g. review materials).

Steerer: In addition to the above, coalition steering committee members are expected to attend all quarterly calls and participate in core project selection and development. The method by which steerer are selected and rotate will be determined in Q3 of 2019 once the coalition achieved its global expansion and sectoral diversity goals.

Member Benefits:


  1. Access to information, stimulating conversations and multi-stakeholder perspectives;

  2. Access to GNMC working tools, including TopLink, the World Economic Forum’s open source networking and communication platform;

  3. Ability to impact portfolio project selection and curation;

  4. Integration of own projects in GNMC portfolio as member projects;

  5. All contributors will be acknowledged by their name and organization (unless opting out).
