Reflecting on the Journey: A Conclusion to the DyMoN Webinar Series

With the wrap up of the DyMoN webinar series on interdisciplinary views on sustainable mobility, we can take the time to reflect on the insightful journey we have embarked upon together. Over the course of four sessions, our community of experts, participants, and contributors has delved deep into the complexities and opportunities of promoting sustainable urban mobility.

From the initial exploration of sustainable mobility perspectives to the innovative use of digital nudges and the impactful discussions on policy recommendations, each session has built upon the last to create a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and solutions in the field. Our exploration spanned across technical feasibility studies in Salzburg, to the creative expanses of the Uppsala hackathon, culminating in actionable insights and policy directions.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants who joined us from various corners of the globe, bringing with them enthusiasm and a willingness to engage in meaningful dialogue. Your active participation and insightful questions have been pivotal in enriching our discussions and outcomes.

A special thank you goes to our speakers and contributors, including Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger, David Leistner, Harris Stamatopoulos, Dr. Martin Loidl, and Sebastian Gatscha from trafficon, whose expertise and dedication have been instrumental in steering our conversations towards productive and innovative directions. We also thank Judith Stiekema and Saara Valtasaari frorm OASC for providing the technical framework to make the webinar session possible.

As we conclude this series, we are reminded of the power of collaboration and interdisciplinary approaches in addressing the complexities of sustainable mobility. The learnings and recommendations shared throughout our sessions provide a roadmap for future initiatives, underscoring the importance of integrating digital behavior change tools with traditional interventions, leveraging existing technologies, and involving stakeholders from the outset.

Though our webinar series has come to an end, the journey towards sustainable urban mobility continues. We are inspired by the motivation, creativity, and commitment demonstrated by our community and look forward to seeing how these insights are applied to make lasting impacts in cities around the world.

Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to the success of the DyMoN webinar series. Your engagement and contributions have not only made this series a success but have also paved the way for continued progress in sustainable urban mobility.

Successful fourth Session – The Webinar has come to an end

On 1st of February 2024 the fouth session of the DyMoN webinar series on an interdisciplinary view on sustainable mobility took place.

During this session 23 participants dove deeper into our two field tests and all the learnings we gathered in the project. David Leistner first presented the field test in Salzburg, Austria, which focused on proving the technical feasability of the DyMoN framework, as well as on provinding preliminary insights into the beavioural effectiveness of the nudges. Harris Stamatopoulos proceeded to present the DyMoN hackathon in Uppsala, Sweden which aimed to prove the flexibility of the DyMoN framework by applying it to different problems. Dr. Claudia Luger-Bazinger, as project manager finally presented 10 learnings and recommendations that came from the project. The first recommendations included:

  • to see Digital Behaviour Change tools as addition to “hard interventions”;
  • to leverage already existing apps and online communities if possible;
  • and to involve citizens, representatives and other stakeholders ideally already from the beginning of the campaign design process.
