IOER Forum: Autumn series starts with a discussion on mobility in Dresden

A sustainable mobility culture and infrastructure will be the topic of a panel discussion entitled "Verkehrswende Dresden – Verkehrsflächen neu denken". The event will take place on 5 September at COSMO Science Forum. It kicks off the autumn series of the IOER Forum.

Our cities have grown and changed for centuries. The great ecological challenges, as shown by Earth Creation Day, demand a fundamental change in our lifestyles and forms of mobility. This raises the question of what this means for the development of our cities and the design of public space. How can the model of the car-centred city be overcome and a sustainable mobility culture and infrastructure be established?

In a panel discussion, we want to make land potentials and the changeability of traffic areas visible. Obstacles to a transport turnaround will be discussed and at the same time potentials for new ideas and creativity will be highlighted. Our guests include Alexander Czeh from the Institute of Transport Research at the German Aerospace Centre, Frank Fiedler from the Dresden City Planning Office, Jutta Wieding from BUND | Friends of the Earth Germany, Gunter Thiele, co-founder of the "IG Automobil in Dresden" and Rico Wittwer, Head of Research for Mobility Behavior and Traffic Planning at Technische Universität Dresden.

The panel discussion will take place on 5 September from 6:30 p.m. at the COSMO Wissenschaftsforum in the Kulturpalast Dresden. Admission is free. Registration is not

In its autumn series 2023, the IOER Forum will address issues surrounding the change in land use under the heading "No net land take - competition for land in cities, regions and landscapes". After the kick-off on 5 September, various in-depth events with guests from science and practice will take place until Christmas - interested parties are cordially invited.
