Berlin Mobility Talks

Come on! Berlin mobility in transition

In Berlin, a large number of players are pushing forward the mobility turnaround. Already there are enough alternatives to move comfortably and at the same time to relieve the road space for the benefit of all. Extensive sharing offers, new types of vehicles, but also mobile applications (apps) for the intelligent use of various mobility services are being used more and more frequently, and are beginning to shape the new cityscape.

But is the mobility shift moving fast enough? Are the actors in your objectives really in agreement? Will we be able to take existing implementation hurdles together? Will the mobile urban man be part of a new, functioning mobility culture for all, or will he remain a lone fighter in a mobile mess?

Based on the results of the network meeting “Sustainable Mobility in Berlin’s Neighborhoods” at the Berlin Agency for Electromobility (eMo) from 2018, we want to discuss with those who are part of the mobility change: citizens, administration, science and companies. Together, we discuss what works well in the interaction with each other, and what can possibly be improved.

Our ultimate goal must be to make the urgently needed changes in our mobility culture sustainable, powerful, purposeful and, most importantly, meaningful, and that there is a “common sense of understanding” that creates a solidarity-based mobile urban society that is both technological and strategic Wants to use opportunities.

The “Berlin Mobility Talks” take place at irregular intervals, but at least once a year together with other major events on the topic of mobility (mobility day on the Steinplatz, International Urban Mobility Dialogue, etc.).

We look forward to your participation! If you are interested in these discussions, please email us at (We would be happy to add you to our distribution list!
