Labour, climate and unions – How do we develop common solutions?


Last year, FridaysForFuture started their first campaign with ver.di (german union) regarding the collective bargaining in public transport. Now the next step has been announced. An alliance of Unteilbar, ver.di and FFF for a social-ecological crisis-policy. We want to look at this development and discuss how employees and the climate movement can work together in the future to actively take part in the transformation of our fossil society.

Digital tools for traffic transformation


The digitalization will not save the world, but digital tools can help to do it. But what programmes, websites and other tools are there? To find out, we want to meet in a virtual room, share experiences and gather certain tools, so we can go home with a full toolbox.

Traffic turnaround and the civil society


Lisa Tschink & Wolfgang Köhler-Naumann

Different point of views and differing daily lives lead people to thinking "transport transformation". This results in a growing number of us wanting to engage in political spaces. The aim is to find a "better" handling of our private and social needs of mobility. Where do we start? How can we achieve changes?

Feminism & traffic turnaround


Rebecca Peters

Our current traffic system is mainly focussed on cars, which leads to the exclusion of different people or groups of people or even their discrimination. Feminist approaches question these prevailing structures and search for solutions to enable a more inclusive system. Despite what you might expect when hearing "feminism", we will not only, but mostly, focus on women*. Similar topics and intersectionality will be part of the discussion. How feminism can contribute to a traffic transformation and what this process can look like, will be discussed in this networking-room.

Public transport in rural areas


Prof. Dr. Jana Kühl, Fabian Lohmann, Stefan Reinhardt, Bernd-Uwe Kleist

The extension of local traffic is always talked about in an urban context, but we also need to focus on rural areas. In these areas, public transportation faces different barriers compared to cities. We want to find out, what barriers there are and what steps we have to take accordingly.

Beneficial financing for the public transport infrastructure in cities


Oliver Mietzsch

Here, we illustrate a beneficial financing concept for cities’ railbound public transport systems. The implicated participation of this concept aims to cover the expenses for developing and extending the street infrastructure or rather municipal supply and disposal infrastructure (BauGB, laws of municipal taxes of the federal states). A significant difference to usual means of collecting taxes for this purpose is, regarding the current financing situation, that in terms of public transportation, there is no common use of it like in street infrastucture and that people are not forced to use (i.e. through follow-up fees).

Inclusive traffic turnaround


Janna Aljets

Mobility for everyone, what does that even mean? How do mobility-needs differ, and what makes the current traffic system unfair? What would our traffic system look like, if everyone was included? Why do we need feminism for more mobility, and how does the public transport take part in this? I will look at these questions by starting with a short presentation and discussing with you afterwards. We will develop ideas and strategies for a more inclusive traffic turnaround.

Composing a city navigation in 30 minutes

Workshop EN

Frank Gerhardt, Holger Bruch

The city of Herrenberg used the travel information system Stadtnavi for their project Clean Air. At this workshop, the developers show us, how every town can establish a Stadtnavi system within 60 minutes.

Homebound telephone


Cornelia Vogt

Concepts like the Homebound-telephone (also known as a "night-line") are common in Germany. It is about company over the phone for people, who are on their way to a destination and are feeling insecure. Cornelia Vogt, chairman of the Homebound-telephone, will be showing us the effects of sexism in public spaces and how we can make a change.

Investment offensive for the environmental network – public transport summit now!

Workshop EN

Mira Ball

We have had enough auto-mobile summits, now we want to talk about the environmental network (cars, busses, bikes). In September 2020 FFF, ver.di, BUND, BUNDjugend, VCD, attac, EVG, Changing Cities, Campact and Naturfreunde presented their collective position paper for the environmental network and have since been fighting for a public transport summit. With growing numbers of supporters, we would like to discuss our ideas about the mobility transformation and make plans on how to reach our goals.

Joining a ride: matrix and the passenger-ticket


Yan Minagawa, Robin Weidner

At this event you will learn about the "Mitfahrscheibe", a ticket or disc similar to a parking disc that informs other people whether you offer lifts or carpools. We will talk about the carpool infrastructure over the last years and discuss its future potential as well as "Packages of Action".

Voluntary traffic turnaround-networking: example of the German Railway Customer Association


Frank Böhnke

Formation and foundation of the DBV and examples of successful and failed projects of the voluntary work in the area of mobility.

Mobility as a service


Public transport after Covid-19


Martin Schiefelbusch, Niklas Hoffmann

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of local traffic users has decreased and the public transport had to face financial penalties. Even though studies have shown that the risk for a Covid-19 infection in public transport are overrated, measures for making public transport more attractive will have to be taken. We will discuss the future of public transport and the need for certain measures.

We’re in this together – campaign for climate protection and public transport employees

Workshop EN

Mira Ball

Climate justice and good working conditions in future green jobs are going hand in hand. Ver.di and FridaysForFuture fought for better working conditions in public transport on the occasion of the #tvn2020 tariff campaign. In 2021 their work together will continue. In this workshop we want to talk about our experiences and help you with making alliances between climate activists and workers last.

Passenger appreciation: the inner and outer design of public transport vehicles


Stephan Kyrieleis

To attract more people to use public transport, it is not just about the price or offer of rides. Public transport needs a new, confident appearance. When looking at the outer designs of trains, we can conclude whether the customers are being valued or only seen as transport goods. The interior design and its color can make a difference considering the level of comfort of the customers. The costs are also low in comparison to the whole vehicle. We will look at practical examples and the various options, including art.

How public transport providers can increase vaccine access (EN)


Stewart Mader

Accelerating COVID-19 vaccination will advance a post-pandemic future in which transit can fully realize its promise. This session will highlight three ways that transit agencies can support vaccination for communities they serve, and explain how accelerating vaccination will help agencies better prepare for post-pandemic service.

Mobility for all: human-facing local traffic


Public space and therefore also public transit is not accessible for everyone in the same way. For many people mobility means free space and social participation. From this view public transit and its’ easy accessibility is essential for social equity. How can a public be designed to give all people with their different requierments the same chance of mobility?

How will the local traffic & the traffic transformation in Bremen continue?


Michael Jonitz, Ralph Saxe, Wolfgang Geißler, Anja Schiemann, Janin Schaffer

Bremen is popular for being a bike city. In the summer of 2019 the newly elected federal state government contractually obligated themselves to create a car free city center and fulfilling all traffic transformations that have to result from that step. What has happened since? How the plans of a car free city center, innovation in public transit and attending aspects are pressed ahead? Bremen’s Social Democrats presented their plan last week: With the “Bremen-Ticket” they want to establish a fare-free public transit including a permanent expansion. But the big advancement with one conclusive plan that brings all singular policies of innovation together could still not be found. With ambassadors of political parties, Einfach Einsteigen and one scientist we discuss what is necessary for the success of a green traffic transformation in Bremen.

Public Transport Slam

Cultural event
