In partnership with key players in the fields of politics, economics, science and civil society, Agora Verkehrswende will pave the way for the full decarbonisation of the transport sector by 2050. We are developing an extensive climate protection strategy and will support its successful implementation.
This climate protection strategy revolves around the transition of the entire transport system from fossil fuels to electricity and fuel generated by renewable energy. The transformation of the transport sector includes increasing the efficiency of the entire traffic system by avoiding unnecessary traffic, transitioning to environmentally friendly modes of transport and improving individual modes of transport. The environmentally friendly development of urban traffic is a key component of the necessary revolution.
The transformation of our transport system is a complex challenge facing all of society. It can only be done by the key societal players working together. Agora Verkehrswende provides the platform for this collaboration, develops processes and provides scientific information on scenarios and methods. Agora Verkehrswende focuses on the land-based transport of passengers and goods in Germany in a European context.
Agora Verkehrswende is a joint initiative of the Mercator Foundation and the European Climate Foundation.
