Toyota Mobility Foundation joins New Cities Foundation as global strategic member

Toyota Mobility Foundation has joined the New Cities Foundation as the latest Global Strategic Member. The partnership between the two organizations aims to activate the next generation of urban mobility solutions.

The Toyota Mobility Foundation and the New Cities Foundation are already discussing a number of substantial research projects and initiatives in the urban mobility area.

Latondra Newton, who also serves a Group Vice President and Chief Social Innovation Officer at Toyota Motor North America, will join the New Cities Foundation’s Board of Trustees, which provides strategic guidance and support on Foundation projects.

Collaboration between the two Foundations began in June 2015 with the launch of the Connected Mobility Initiative led by New Cities Foundation’s senior fellow Greg Lindsay. The research initiative maps how public sector agencies are leading the charge on new mobility innovations. The initiative’s findings will be published later this year.

The New Cities Foundation is an independent non-profit organization which conducts pragmatic research on solutions to challenges facing cities and launches initiatives to drive urban progress. The Foundation convenes events on urban innovation, including the annual New Cities Summit. The Foundation was created in 2010 and is financed by its members and partners. The Foundation is based in Geneva and its head office is in Montréal with smaller offices in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Zurich.

The Toyota Mobility Foundation was established in August 2014 to support the development of a more mobile society. The Foundation aims to support strong mobility systems while eliminating disparities in mobility. Programs include resolving urban transportation problems, expanding the utilization of personal mobility, and developing solutions for next-generation mobility.
