polisMOBILITY camp – Experience and help design the mobility transition in Cologne!
The polisMOBILITY camp is returning to the Cologne city centre this spring.
On the Whit weekend from 26 - 28 May 2023, the urban area between Rudolfplatz and Friesenplatz will transform into an experience space for the mobility of the future.
The focus there will be on the question of how we in Cologne can jointly shape the mobility of tomorrow and, in doing so, also promote climate protection, urban mobility and livable neighbourhoods?
Against this background, the City of Cologne, in cooperation with Koelnmesse, invites to a citizens' dialogue with interactive exhibition, dialogue forums, possibilities for participation, local initiatives and a colourful supporting programme. Subsequent to the international trade fair event polisMOBILITY (24 - 26 Mai at Koelnmesse), pioneering mobility solutions will in this way find their way directly to where they are needed.
We are transforming the Cologne Ring and invite you to enter into discussion with us!
Our goal: making the mobility of tomorrow tangible for citizens! Where traffic otherwise rolls on broad traffic lanes, we are setting up the temporary polisMOBILITY camp in the heart of the cathedral city and creating space for information, dialogue and creativity.
What is required to make the city districts greener and more livable, thereby ensuring individual mobility possibilities? How do roads and public spaces need to change on order to provide all traffic participants enough space? How can we expand pedestrian routes, bike paths and the public transportation system? How can citizens take the mobility transition into their own hands? How is the City of Cologne advancing the change to sustainable mobility offerings that are fit for the future? What examples of this already exist in the Cologne metropolitan area, and what can we learn from their implementation? We all have a stake in the answers to these important questions for the future. It is thus all the more important that we enter into an exchange and work together to develop and discuss ideas.
This year too, we are bringing together personalities from science, civil society, companies, politics and administration to engage in dialogue. We invite all citizens to take part in street conversations, discussion groups and inspiring lectures. Hospitality offerings, comfortable seating and a variety of stage activities with music and culture round off the programme.
We present solutions where they are needed!
Whether electromobility, cargo bike or car sharing: visitors will experience the mobility of the future up close in the interactive exhibition area. The polisMOBILITY camp gathers a large selection of modern vehicles for urban mobility with alternative and zero-emissions drives. Companies from various branches revolving around mobility, climate protection and digitalisation present their products and explain the added value of their solutions for the city of the future - from smart city applications to pioneering traffic concepts for the "last mile".
There will once again be a circuit especially for two-wheelers. In addition to this, those interested have the one-time chance to book accompanied test drives in electrical vehicles. These start directly in public city traffic and make it possible to experience the vehicles personally in a real city environment.
Do you offer mobility solutions? Present them in the polisMOBILITY camp
Present your concepts for the drive system and traffic transition in the exhibition areas and on the test track of the polisMOBILITY camp and enter into a dialogue with citizens – with a presentation area on Rudolfplatz or in the context of test tracks for cars, e-motorcycles or e-scooters.
