Stadt und Land gemeinsam denken

Agents of regional transformation

Climate change, the mobility turn or circular processes reducing waste of all kind – these are  main topics around the world. But how can they become a reality on the ground? How can traditional procurements be changed in an acceptable time-frame? How can the people become part of a desirable change and drive it as agents of transformation?

In times of the pandemic the project had to develop new ways of reaching out: a virtual expert meeting, key interviews, an online base to report on progress … Research and action will be going on in the next months to gather a critical mass for change.

On November 16th 2020 distinguished experts from the fields of mobility and governance met to sharpen ideas on a post-fossile future outside large urban cores and record their findings in a position paper.
