Calendar : Game of Goals: Online International Sustainable Transport Championship
On 3-10 May 2021, the Game of Goals: Online International Sustainable Transport Championship was held as part of the Fifth High-level Meeting on Transport, Health and Environment (THE PEP).
Participants from 7 cities (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Irkutsk, Pskov, Rostov-on-Don, Perm) were divided into 3 teams (composed of transportation experts, ecologists, economists, urbanists and architects) and, together with mentors, had been developing solutions, contributing to promotion of sustainable low-carbon transport and mobility.
The game participants were mentored by leading international and Russian experts in sustainable transportation modeling, planning and design:
• Vadim Donchenko, Research Supervisor at JSC “Scientific and Research Institute of Motor Transport”, Deputy Chairman of THE PEP Steering Committee Bureau
• Olga Iakimenko, ICSER Leontief Centre, Game of Goals Business Game Coordinator, Green Mobility International Partnership Initiative Coordinator
• Kirill Zhanaydarov, Transport Department Head, Skolkovo Foundation
• Rimma Filippova, Transportation Expert, Green Mobility
• Alexey Levashev, Technical Director of the Scientific Research Transportation Laboratory, Irkutsk National Research Technical University
• Alexandra Bakhmutskaya, Director, St. Petersburg State Institution “External Transport Agency”
• Arina Loginova, SDSN Youth Russia Coordinator
The teams reached the online championship final with the following projects:
• Team 1 — BAIKal routers. Project “Active year of Baikal — Bike route Irkutsk–Baikal”
• Team 2 — Elon Musk’s nine friends. Project “Try&fly”
• Team 3 — Dronezone. Project “Sky by Skolkovo”
Innovation has clashed with sustainable tourism. At the stage of final voting, mentors and experts chose the e-bike route in the name of preserving the Baikal ecosystem, and the BAIKal routers team, therefore, became the winner of the Game of Goals: Online International Sustainable Transport Championship. The preservation and sustainable development of Lake Baikal, which contains about 20% of the world’s fresh lake water reserves and over 80% of Russia’s reserves, is a global problem of humanity.
