Mobility is a prerequisite for fulfilling essential human needs. Work, education, social participation: All these activities mean that regular journeys have to be made. However, especially in cities, the "side effects" of mobility such as traffic congestion, accidents, air pollution, noise and the resulting health effects also become apparent.

The Covid-19 pandemic has clearly influenced mobility behaviour. While public transport is struggling with a sharp decline in ridership, individual forms of mobility - such as walking, cycling and car transport - are gaining in importance. At the same time, protection against infection and adherence to distance rules have the highest priority. In Berlin, a so-called pop-up bike infrastructure is being created - temporary bike lanes that enable safe cycling and the necessary distance with simple means. What reactions do the pop-up bike lanes provoke among road users? The aim of the present study was to record the reactions and perceptions in the form of advantages and disadvantages by means of an online survey.

Encouraging cycling and walking as means of transport for getting around the city is not only good for the environment and air quality per se, but currently also supports the overall public health goal of minimizing the spread of COVID-19. As each person that cycles or walks instead of using public transit is thereby considerably reducing the risk of infection or of infecting others.

Sufficiency is one important strategy for sustainable development. At an individual level, we need a better understanding of the relationship between sufficiency attitude and CO2footprint. In this paper, we analyze sufficiency as a psychological determinant of low-carbon lifestyles and introduce an empirical measurement scale for individual sufficiency attitudes.

Here's how. Rethinking and implementing pedestrian traffic in cities: Walking is "in". More and more cities are creating zones for encounters and turning parking spaces and lanes into wider walking and cycling paths or attractive squares. The city is becoming a second living room for many people who walk.

With reference to previous empirical findings by IASS and ENavi researchers, the following chapter shows that while people in Germany generally support the energy transition (Energiewende), they believe that the implementation process is socially unjust and badly managed.

The following chapter illustrates, on the basis of empirical research results from the IASS and the Kopernikus project ENavi, that people in Germany support the energy transition, but consider its implementation to be socially unjust and not targeted enough.
