International speaker series - The shift towards emissions-free transportation

About this event

Next in our speaker series, we welcome Monica Araya – electrification advocate and member of the UN Climate Champions’ team – for a session on the future of mobility and the role of transport in the global transition to low emissions.

Monica has spent 25 years engaging with leaders in government, business, philanthropy and activism to accelerate the shift toward emissions-free transportation. During this open Zoom, we will learn more about Monica’s work in this space, look at what we can learn from her experiences here in Aotearoa, and explore how the Commission’s advice stacks up.

Monica joined the Climate Champions as Transport Lead in 2020 to drive the global adoption of emissions-free mobility as part of the Race to Zero campaign. Hearing from her just a few days out from the start of COP26 in Glasgow will give us real-time understanding of the momentum building around climate action globally.

Monica has lived and worked in Latin America, Europe and the US with roles across government, private sector and civil society. She brings a wealth of experience championing local and global electric mobility strategies with a focus on using renewables to electrify transport as well as active mobility, such as cycling and walking.

Climate change is a global challenge. This is the eleventh in our series of open Zoom sessions with international experts who have been leading climate action in their respective jurisdictions.
