Sustainable Mobility Forum "Driving Into a Sustainable Future"

Sustainable Mobility – is a topic relevant on both sides of the Atlantic: Metropolitan regions in the United States and Germany today have to face the challenge on how they want to secure mobility for necessary economic processes in the future, without endangering the participation of individual groups in social activities and at the same time keep the environmentally negative consequences of mobility as low as possible. This becomes increasingly important considering growing population and traffic rates. Cities and communities need to develop and implement future mobility masterplans that will help to move people and products quickly and efficiently via air, road, railway and sea to global markets. The question remains on how to apply smart sustainability solutions? 

To find solutions, the GACC South is organizing a roadshow on the topic of "Driving into a Sustainable Future" in the Southern US.
