Eurist - Lectures on cycling policy
Under the patronage of former German Transport Minister Kurt Bodewig, Eurist offers lectures about best practice in sustainable mobility.
The lectures are a combination of information inputs, online interviews with experts and plenary discussions.
In the opening year the topic will be global cycling policy.
The project addresses students from different faculties, in order to emphasise the interdisciplinary aspect of sustainable mobility.
The overall objective is to improve the combination of teaching, practice and policy in the field of sustainable mobility. An important component is to raise the awareness of the importance of sustainable mobility for their professional careers and thus to improve the level of importance it has as a subject in relevant university classes.
In the opening year of the lectures cycling policy is used as an example for the tension between traditional transport planning and sustainable transport policy, which is so difficult to overcome.
It will be a plea for the integration of urban Planning and Transport planning in order for the future experts to be able to understand and solve some of the most challenging global issues of their time.
