Abstract

In this paper, we outline work underway within the EC funded MATISSE project to develop innovative agent based simulation models to support learning and decision-making for Integrated Sustainability Assessments (ISAs) of sustainable mobility. The tools we are developing are designed to simulate - and stimulate - 'transitions' (radical systemic innovation) to sustainable futures. In applying the modelling tool to the land-based mobility case, we have used desk research and stakeholder workshops to identify visions of and pathways to sustainable mobility. Future work will use the agent-based modelling tool to assess the impacts of policies on sustainability criteria defined by stakeholders.
