Monica Araya

I work with leaders in governments, business, philanthropy, and activism to accelerate the shift toward fossil-free, sustainable mobility.

The electrification of road transportation with renewables is critical from a climate perspective, from an urban perspective we also need fewer cars in the city center, more cycling and walking. We need as many zero-emissions options as possible to secure greener and healthier cities.

In 2021, I have advised various global campaigns and initiatives, including the COP26 Climate Champions and RouteZero and Drive Electric campaign. I support the Costa Rican E-mobility Association and various initiatives. For more information visit here.
