08: Climate change – The future of transport

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Climate change and forecasts about its impact on human life and society have become one of the most addressed political issues within the past few years. Measures to reduce factors with negative effects on global climate have partly been successfully implemented (industry), while other areas (private households, transport) have not even changed the trend in order to support the Kyoto goals. Especially transport will increasingly contribute to overall CO2 emissions and so far there is no indication that this trend will change or how to do it. Topics to be discussed: prognosis, foresight with specific respect to the impact on transport; industry/economy; transport policies/transport infrastructure; technology.
