Have you ever wondered about the hidden trips that underpin the care work essential to our daily lives? Inés Sánchez de Madariaga coined the concept mobility of care, shining light on the daily travel patterns and mobility needs that go along with reproductive labor.

In this thought-provoking episode, we discuss the need to elevate the mobility of care in transport planning. Joined by esteemed expert Aimée Gauthier, the Chief Knowledge Officer at the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), we explore the significance of acknowledging and prioritizing these often unvalued and unrecognized care trips. From addressing gender disparities in transportation to fostering inclusive communities, we uncover the essential elements for a more compassionate and equitable transport system.

This episode is part of a series of interviews with some of the Remarkable Feminist Voices in Transport 2023, who were awarded by TUMI’s Women Mobilize Women initiative. Tune in!
