DyMoN webinars for an interdisciplinary view on motivating sustainable urban mobility
Within the project “Dynamic Mobility Nudge” (DyMoN), we bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to support people in making sustainable choices when it comes to urban mobility. Join us during upcoming (remote) webinars for an interdisciplinary view on motivating sustainable urban mobility. This free webinar series will be accompanied by the handbook “Digital nudging for sustainable mobility” (free download upon publication in November 2023).
For more Information about the Webinar Series please see DyMoN Webinar Series
The first Webinar, An interdisciplinary view on sustainable urban mobility behaviour, takes place on 16th of November 2023 from 14.00 to 15.00 (UTC+1) via Zoom.
In this webinar, we will focus on the importance of sustainable mobility within cities: In a first step, we will briefly dive into the sustainability discourse and connect it with mobility. We will learn about the tension field between negative ecological effects, economic prosperity and societal participation. A key for a systemic understanding for sustainable mobility is the spatial reference. Mobility can be defined as the opportunity and capability to move in space. Following this definition, people’s mobility is ultimately dependent on distance, accessibility, connectivity, and the design of the streetscape. The latter is particularly due to the fact that the perception of the built and natural environment influences mobility decisions. With this in mind, we will reflect together on the following questions: What exactly is sustainable mobility? What are spatial aspects of sustainable mobility? What kind of environment do we need to provide to make sustainable modes the “natural” option? And what potentials can we unlock for a shift towards sustainable urban mobility?
