Bike Tour / Transport Transition: Challenges, Chances and Solutions
June 14, 2018 @ 5:30 am - 10:30 pm
Traffic is increasing in our cities as ever more people move to cities and have mobility requirements. Individual motorised traffic takes up a lot of space, creates more emissions and noise that are bad for both our mental and physical health, and of course, the climate. A transportation transition to sustainable modes of transport is needed: public transport, cycling, walking, e-mobility, inter-modal interconnectivity and sharing systems.
However, the question is how will this be possible? How do we enable sustainable transport modes in cities that were built for cars and in a country with the world’s 4th largest car industry, producing 95% of the world’s luxury cars? What is needed to transform transport into a sustainable activity in people-friendly cities? What are the key challenges and chances for cities and industries? And what are best practice examples? What has been achieved so far and what can you do?
This and much more will be presented this month’s Sustainability Drinks with a bike tour, talks and presentations at the InnoZ space at the EUREF campus for sustainably energy and mobility.
Bike Tour & Talks @5:30pm
