More citizen participation in mobility and infrastructure in Berlin
In spring, the first CCC workshops on mobility scenarios took place in Berlin. Several groups of citizens were involved and discussed different variants with Prof. Dr. Kai Nagel, Technische Universität Berlin. Together with Prof. Dr. Hans-Liudger Dienel, he is conducting this “CitizenScience Project for Transport and Energy Transition Scenarios”, which is funded by the Einstein Foundation. Project staff member Nora Bonatz also recently presented the project at an innovation camp in Loccum.
The next workshops dealt with the topic of “Sustainable Infrastructure Scenarios”. The scenarios were created by Prof Eike Roswag-Klinge and Kim Gundlach from the Natural Building Lab at TU Berlin. Three topics were discussed: Energy considerations for buildings, land and soil use and biodiversity.

The process was well received by citizens: “In the group I was in, there were only positive reactions, tips or suggestions, and no negative ones. Actually, we all have the same goals,” was one comment. A participant who had also taken part in the Climate Citizens’ Council said: “I think it’s good that it’s continuing.” One participant said: “I’ve really enjoyed it so far, it’s very interesting to hear other opinions.” “I suspect that many people would still participate if they knew that this form also existed,” said another participant.
