On September 13, the House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM) hosted the conference “Sustainable mobility in a livable urban region”: Representatives from municipalities, transport companies and start-ups discussed with politicians, scientists, architects about the status and challenges of sustainable transport in the Rhine-Main region. Among others, the architect Marten Wassmann, who played a leading role in the well-known station buildings in the Netherlands, reported on his experiences in the planning and implementation of large infrastructure projects in a conversation with Kai Vöckler.
One of the highlights of the conference: François Bausch, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Transport of Luxembourg, reported enthusiastically on the paradigm shift in Luxembourg’s transport policy with free public transport and considerable investments in local transport and bicycle infrastructure. He then took part in the panel discussion moderated by Jürgen Schultheis (HOLM) and featuring top-class speakers.
The recording of the entire conference is available online (program with timestamps in the description on YouTube).
Two days earlier, “S.O.U.P. Shaping our urban phuture – the urbanism festival” in the sports arena at Frankfurt’s main station was also in part about future mobility: Kai Vöckler represented the perspective of mobility design at the discussion event “Frankfurt as a transport hub – What moves Frankfurt” on September 11, 2021. And in the exhibition “City in Sight. Perspectives on Living Together from the HfG Offenbach”, info-graphics and innovative bicycles showed how sustainable mobility can be designed.
