Mobility has grown for a long time above-average to the gross national product. However, this big growth also has negative impacts: ecological pollution, land consumption, urban sprawl etc. Especially the following questions need to be dealt with:

  • Should we pursue a detachment of the traffic growth from the growth of the economy, as it is done in the energy sector? Is such a detachment possible at all? By what means?
  • How can we decrease the negative ecological impacts of traffic?
  • How can traffic and settlement development be better coordinated?
