Traffic transition in a growing Berlin
Berlin has set itself ambitious climate targets: the city has to be climate neutral by 2050. Since the agreements at the Paris Climate Conference in 2015 it has become evident that cities have to do more for climate protection. In order to achieve this, the path ahead has to be set now. A core plank in this is a transition in traffic.
The concept detailed by Urban Catalyst provides pointers and measures as to how Berlin’s mobility can be made more climate-friendly and less resource intensive, and how the city can simultaneously improve the quality of life of its inhabitants. This approach involves focussing on four key questions:
* What are the urban-development and urban-planning prerequisites that determine Berlin’s position in terms of sustainable mobility?
* Where does Berlin currently stand on this path in terms selected indicators that map out an overview of core mobility factors?
* What are the citywide strategic measures that can meet the specific mobility demands of a metropolis?
* What can be done for sustainable mobility at a micro level in four prototypical districts?
