In der Fachtagung "Verkehrswende: Urbanen Raum neu denken" werden erste Ergebnisse der SÖF-Nachwuchsgruppe EXPERI "Die Verkehrswende als sozial-ökologisches Realexperiment" vorgestellt und diskutiert. Termin: Freitag, 07.10.2022 Programm: folgt im Juni Anmeldung:...
Im interdisziplinären Forschungskolloquium werden Forschungsarbeiten aus dem Bereich der sozialwissenschaftlichen Mobilitätsforschung vorgestellt und gemeinsam konstruktiv-kritisch diskutiert. Bei laufenden Forschungsarbeiten liegt der Schwerpunkt auf Fragen der geplanten theoretischen und methodischen Herangehensweise,...
The government wants to relieve the burden on citizens with a 9-euro monthly ticket for buses and trains. However, free public transport would be easier to implement and more affordable.
A commentary from the perspective of sustainability research on the dispute over the expansion of Berlin's A100 motorway by Sophia Becker in the "Studio 9 Interview" on Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
Should public transport be free of charge? Experience shows: Just because the bus costs nothing, far from all people stop using their cars.
Drivers have been annoyed by high fuel prices for weeks. The German government wants to take countermeasures. But it also wants to make "good old" public transport more attractive through price incentives. Is that enough to keep Germany mobile?
"The already rising fuel prices in Germany have quickly climbed to unimagined heights since the war in Ukraine began. Many complain about the effects, others see opportunities for the traffic transition. (...)"
The attack on Ukraine makes rapid energy savings necessary. In their position paper, Sophia Becker and Ortwin Renn from the IASS focus on energy consumption. With the right incentives, consumption can be reduced without creating problematic social burdens.
The 10% share of motorised private transport (MIV) calculated in the 2050 scenario (incl. car sharing, taxis, etc.) must have 100% alternative drive systems. This vision is supported at the municipal level in particular with subsidies for charging infrastructure for electric automobility. This long-term scenario illustrates that electric mobility, along with other alternative drive technologies, is seen as a key to achieving a decarbonised and sustainable transport system. Against this background, this article examines how the efforts to attain a 10% rate of motorised private transport in Berlin are currently distributed spatially.
How can urban spaces be designed to strengthen active mobility and the amenity quality of places? Julia Jarass talks about her experiences and insights for the Weltverbesserer-Podcast.
