Cities across Europe are turning to shared bike and scooter operators to help get their citizens moving once again — without getting too close to one another.
Some think this a big step towards more sustainable transport catching on. Others aren’t so sure about these micromobility companies’ ‘green’ credentials.
We discuss what kind of behavioural change cities are witnessing, dig into just how sustainable these forms of transport are and ask, what’s better: bikes — or scooters?

Hosted by Female Founders
Female Founders is the fastest growing community for female entrepreneurial minds in Europe. We, as Female Founders, believe that – in a world facing more challenges than ever – today’s economy and society are forced to change, and that female entrepreneurs will play a crucial role in this transformation by being the leaders of change.
Our vision is to contribute to this change by fostering these women who drive positive change. For us, an entrepreneurial mindset is not only about starting a business, it’s about being active, taking responsibility, making a positive difference, being optimistic, passionate and proactive, as well as having confidence and trust in yourself.
We realize this vision by creating a pan-European ecosystem for female entrepreneurial minds, currently consisting of three pillars: Base F, Lead F & Grow F. Driven by our values, we regard ourselves as a meaningful connection for everyone in our community. By being a source of support and guidance, we’re there every step along the way of the entrepreneurial minds’ life.
Making Europe “fit for the digital age” is an undertaking that requires cooperation and collaboration. This has only become more evident in 2020, when unprecedented disruption has demanded a reconfiguration of how businesses run, how public administrations operate, and how citizens go about their daily lives.
This unique virtual edition of Masters of Digital – DIGITALEUROPE’s flagship annual gathering – will focus on the role of digital in strengthening Europe’s emergence from the global pandemic, and look at how deeper collaboration between business, government and civil society will deliver on the goal of a stronger digital Europe.
