Roads, sidewalks and public squares should be built for residents and climate-friendly, low-emission transportation.
That is why, Vienna has set a goal of reducing CO2 emissions from transportation by 50% by 2030, as well as reclaiming public space back for residents. Radical, systemic changes are needed in individual private mobility, as well as in carbon-intensive forms of public transport by for example, the development of new subway lines.
During the simulation, participants were divided into three working groups: reclaiming public space, embracing the e-mobility revolution, and re-thinking mobility in Vienna.
The three working groups represented organizations concerned about the future of mobility and urban space management in Vienna. Each organization represented a different group of residents, background and worldviews with different visions of urban space management. The goal was to create a coherent urban policy. Participants, joined in the Panel on Vienna Mobility, discussed and negotiated policy proposals on the issue of urban space and transportation.
The workshop was conducted in cooperation with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
