Heiner Monheim Tue, 23rd May 2023, 8:00 pm Sustainable mobility now! USA - Germany comparison Information Why is it so difficult for Germany to make progress on the transformation of its transport system? What is involved in a real transport turnaround and what does it take? And how do German transport policy developments compare with those in the USA? Transport scientist Heiner Monheim draws a comparison between the two countries. Against the backdrop of climate change, he says, a major shift is needed from road to more efficient modes of transport, in long-distance, regional and local traffic as well as in freight transport. Prof. Dr. Heiner Monheim is co-owner of the raumkom Institute for Spatial Development and Communication in Trier.
