New mobility Berlin – advancing sustainable mobility together
The NEUE MOBILITÄT BERLIN (NMB) project consortium under the lead of Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft/TU Berlin has been developing constructive answers to the question of how we as city dwellers want to be out and about in our neighborhoods in the future. The transdisciplinary research and practice project develop approaches to promote more sustainable and climate-protecting forms of local mobility together with stakeholders and civil society.
This also includes making people aware of and giving them the chance to experience the many facets of new mobility offers, developing holistic approaches to demand-oriented mobility and jointly exploring alternative uses of urban parking spaces.

The team consists of the district office of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, the Berlin Agency for Electromobility eMO, the ZTG (Center for Technology and Society/ TU Berlin), insel-projekt.berlin UG and the BMW Group. Other actors and stakeholders were and will be included through different formats, such as “Mobility Days”, workshops on the use of alternative mobility and jointly developed, temporary conversions of parking spaces. The ZTG took on various tasks during the entire project period: e. g. planning and implementation of participation measures as well as the analysis of interests of different stakeholders and the cooperative development of formats that support transformation.
Between 2017 and 2020, a campaign format called „Deine Sommerflotte“ or „Deine Flotte“ (“Your Summer Fleet” or “Your Fleet”) was implemented: Inhabitants of the participating districts left their own cars for four weeks and experimented with the diverse options of alternative mobility offers. This format enhances the visibility of the extensive alternatives to one’s own car that are available in Berlin, stimulates multimodal mobility without owning a car and makes a concrete contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. The ZTG carried out accompanying surveys that primarily focused on the needs of different groups of people. In the future, the knowledge gained is to be scaled to the entire Berlin urban area.
