The transport transition is a socio-technical transformation process that cannot succeed without the acceptance of the population. Conceptually, three levels of acceptance can be distinguished: (i) tolerance, (ii) positive attitude and (iii) active engagement (Renn 2013).

Connectedness to nature is considered an important predictor of environmentally conscious behaviour. Adolescents represent an important target group in education for sustainable development. In this study, a youth version in German of the Connectedness to Nature Scale (CNS; Mayer & Frantz, 2004) was developed and validated.

Air pollution remains a problem in German cities. In particular, the nitrogen dioxide (NO2) annual limit-value set by the European Union of 40 µg/m3 was not met at ~40% of roadside monitoring stations across German cities in 2018. In response to this issue, many cities are experimenting with various traffic-reducing measures targeting diesel passenger vehicles so as to reduce emissions of NO2 and improve air quality. Identifying the determinants of public acceptance for these measures using a systematic approach can help inform policy-makers in other German cities.

Urban mobility is the main source of air pollution in Europe and accounts for 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to address this, a range of interventions and policies are being implemented across major European cities and studies in sustainable urban transport have proliferated. One such mitigation strategy involves redesigning urban form through 'hard' traffic policies, with a view of decreasing emission levels and therefore mitigating the effects of air pollution and climate change.
