Mobility is crucial for achieving overall sustainability. The topic is therefore covered intensively as part of the module ‘sustainable urban and regional development’. We started with an introduction by Prof. Udo Becker from the chair of transport ecology of TU Dresden and some guidelines on how to council municipalities with regard to walking and cycling by Dr. Thilo Becker. Then some hands-on experience followed right away – check some impressions below. Click on the pictures to see the explanations.
