The first day of the polisMOBILITY conference started with the official opening of the polisMOBILITY trade fair & conference by Cologne's Lord Mayor Henriette Reker and Oliver Frese, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH - with the participation of Science-YouTuber and researcher Jacob Beautemps and moderated by Bianca Hauda.
Afterwards, the discussion continued in an exciting way: how we will get around in the city of short distances in the future: The internationally renowned Prof. Marco te Brömmelstroet, known as the "bicycle professor", gave a Dutch perspective on the question of what urgently needs to change in current mobility behaviour.
In a keynote speech, Katja Schechtner (MIT Boston) explained how we can learn from the global South. Prof. Dr. Uwe Schneidewind (Mayor of the City of Wuppertal, formerly of the Wuppertal Institute) spoke on sustainable forms of mobility. In the panel, Juliane Krause (office owner plan&rat) and Christine Wenzel (Director Public Policy DACH & CEE, TIER Mobility) together with moderator Andrea Reidl shed light on the topic.
Another main topic was automated, connected and autonomous driving. Be it the use of automated mobility in municipalities, legal framework conditions as well as the aspects of safety and reliability. You don't have to be a prophet to be able to predict that autonomous systems in the mobility sector will come onto the market in the coming years. An important point regarding the future acceptance of these systems lies in the area of safety and reliability. Where are we today? What still needs to be done? From which industries can we learn? These questions were discussed by Prof. Andreas Braasch (IQZ Wuppertal) and Philipp Reusch (Reusch Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH).

The morning at visionSTAGE was dedicated to the range of sustainable drive technologies. At the beginning, a keynote discussed whether the electric drive is really the most sensible alternative to the combustion engine, followed by a close look at the hydrogen system, and finally the discussion forum "Whatever drives your car" offered a detailed look at new drive technologies and their market relevance.

On Friday, "change" was one of the focus topics of the polisMOBILITY conference programme. The Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen e.V. (Association of German Transport Companies) took a look at the question of what changes await us in public transport on the way to innovative urban mobility. In addition to other formats, among others by EIT Urban Mobility, and on the topic of "Last Mile", the day at visionSTAGE concluded with a lecture by sociologist Prof. Harald Welzer entitled "Wende statt Spirale: Von Mündigkeit und Entschiedenheit für die Transformation im Mobilitätsdenken": Mobility is a question of the kind of movement that a modern society needs. This question is not answered by the solutions of the 20th century. The mobility of the future must be sustainable and democratic as part of the provision of public services. The development of a mobility for the 21st century also includes strategies to avoid movement - Prof. Harald Welzer spoke about this at visionSTAGE on Friday from 16:00.

Fortified with coffee and rolls, it was a good start to the last day of the conference! At 10:30 a.m. there was a small breakfast at visionSTAGE.
From 11:00 a.m., the coffee became even more vitalising with a talk by Science-YouTuber and researcher Jacob Beautemps - inspiration and new insights as a topping. What are the most promising technologies of the future? What makes a technology that can change our lives? And how much of the future is already in the present? These and other questions were explored in the lecture.
Later, questions were addressed: How has the city of Vienna managed to reduce the number of parent taxis in school traffic? And what can industrialised nations learn from transport solutions in developing and emerging countries?
With various keynote presentations, we looked at examples of urban transformation and mobility - from Austria and beyond - at visionSTAGE on Saturday. In the subsequent panel discussion "Toolbox Urban Transformation", moderator Michaela Heiser explored the question of which instruments promote the transport turnaround and how to involve civil society in the process with Petra Jens (Pedestrian Traffic Officer, City of Vienna), Bernhard Ensink (Strategic Consultant at Mobycon) and Frank Zimmermann (ifok GmbH), among others.
Finally, the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger devoted its press feature to the central question: What must happen for Cologne to achieve the mobility turnaround?
