Session 4. Mobility of the future on a global scale
Session chairman: Eric Dautriat, Air and Space Academy (AAE)
14:00 – Presentation of themes and introduction of speakers by the session chair
14:10 – Travel: a given of civilisation – The evolution of air transport uses Is the use of long-distance travel linked to the model of Western society, or to a deep anthropological need? What are its sociological characteristics at the global level? In the field of “mass tourism”, what role is played by the desire for discovery, on the one hand, and the demonstration of social status on the other? What role can citizens’ climate concerns play in the future in the evolution of usage, and what paradigm shifts can they induce for air transport itself, in particular under the possible catalytic effect of the health crisis?
