Mobile to the #work – commuting and changes in the world of work as a result of digitalization

Prospering communities in suburban areas with highly frequented commercial areas are faced with the task of reinventing their companies as an attractive working world for the digital age. At the same time, individual mobility patterns and the demands on routes to and from work are changing. These changes represent significant potential for a sustainable mobility system. Specifically, this not only includes commuting flows and internal company mobility concepts, but goes far beyond that to develop the future of mobility closely with the ideas of future work and to think further spatially. For this task, many actors have to coordinate their work: companies, municipalities, politics, transport companies, science and practice. Time to actively shape the future of mobility together - to get to work together! The aim of the 2035 vision of the future is to work together with the city administration of the city of Burgwedel and the companies based there to find viable solutions not only for individual companies, but options for the entire city and its residents.

Mobile to #work – together, infrastructure, mobility culture (#maw)

Under the slogan “Together, infrastructure, mobility culture” we want to rethink mobility together with the people in Burgwedel. Numerous measures are planned for this by the end of 2024. The aim is to work together with the Burgwedel city administration and the companies based there as well as the population to develop viable solutions for the entire city and its residents.
The discussion process that has already been initiated should now begin. Narratives of the future are developed and tested together and continued in concrete projects. In addition to individual construction measures, the innovative strength lies in integrating companies as powerful partners for the topic of mobility in the small community. The contacts that have already been made and the exchange within the network ensure successful implementation and highlight the direct benefit for the target group through their cooperation. Planned work packages optimize life and work processes on site, synergistically combining new ideas about mobility with profitable solutions. The communication process will conclude with the #Summer of Mobility, a real-world laboratory lasting several weeks in the city of Burgwedel in the summer of 2024.
