Fiat is calling on motoring enthusiasts to share their ideas for the future of sustainable transport as part of the ‘Our Future Mobility’ project created by the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA).
The Italian carmaker is organising a virtual roundtable to invite everyone interested on the future of mobility to discuss their ideas. Throughout November, Fiat will be exploring future design, sustainability and accessibility of transport and is encouraging everyone to share their ideas.
Kicking it all of will be Fiat Chrysler Design Vice-President Roberto Giolito with a special online seminar on ‘Design, Future and Accessibility’ on November 4, 2013, at 3pm which can be followed live via the Google+ and YouTube channels (www.youtube.com/user/fiatontheweb).
At the end of the ‘lecture’, Giolito and his team will be online on the Fiat Google+ page, (plus.google.com/+Fiat/posts) to answer the questions posted by the community using the #DFA hashtag on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ live.
Three top-level international bloggers specifically involved in the fields of design, automotive engineering and future mobility trends will be taking part in the debate.
Until November 23, anyone who wishes to share their vision of the future for the automobile industry can go to the ‘Our Future Mobility Now’ Facebook page and click on the ‘Design Future Accessibility’ tab and follow the instructions provided in the video tutorial.
To take part, visitors are encouraged to send a A3 size .PDF file containing text, drawings, audio or video features which expresses their ideas for future mobility.
Ideas which will be evaluated by the end of 2013 by a panel of Fiat Style Centre designers. Three ideas will be picked and the creators will be invited to spend two days in Turin between January and March 2014 to discuss their plans with Roberto Giolito and his team and visit the Fiat Style Centre and the Auto Museum.
