Over the last 20 years, the Deutsche Bahn’s Umweltforum (environmental forum) has firmly established itself as the central platform for green mobility. Once a year, decision makers from the political sphere, civil society, the business world and the science realm meet in Berlin to discuss current challenges, expectations and developments in green mobility: How should mobility be shaped in times of climate change? What are the main drivers of innovation? What might concrete solutions for green mobility look like?
