At the first international BMW Group Student Forum on 30 November 2015, students from twelve countries discussed challenges and solutions for urban mobility with BMW experts. University students from Brazil, China, Chile, Germany, France, UK, India, Canada, Russia, Serbia, South Korea and US attended. Discussions focused on electro-mobility, car-sharing, highly-automated driving and IT-based services.
The stakeholder event in Paris was the BMW Group’s fifth dialogue event this year, following dialogues with sustainability experts and university students organised by the BMW Group at national level in Berlin, London, Shanghai and Seattle. Students from London, Shanghai and Seattle joined their counterparts from Paris at the event in the French capital.
Dr. Thomas Becker, head of Governmental Affairs at the BMW Group: “All the threads of our stakeholder involvement come together in Paris at the end of 2015. We have been discussing urban mobility with university students throughout the year. We have already received very interesting feedback from all the discussions. Here in Paris, we are now bringing students from the different cities together to generate additional impetus.”
