The city of Leipzig, Germany, hosted a workshop of one week with 100 participants from around the world to learn about implementing sustainable mobility in cities. For the first time, Leipzig is taking part of the European Mobility Week this 2016 and results from the summer school will provide important input to start a discussion on different ways of sustainable mobility for the future of Leipzig. The workshop aimed to show the way for big cities in central eastern Europe to a sustainable mobility future.
Participants worked in groups focusing on specific areas of the city and of sustainable mobility such as pedestrianization of certain streets, public transport and cycling culture and infrastructure. Different participants shared their city’s current mobility situation and see similarities and different approaches. From city to city, the workshop came back to the case study of Leipzig and technical solutions where discussed for transport hubs, walkways, cycling routes and public transport in Leipzig
