Reducing air pollution in cities with innovative digital solutions – cities and municipalities are presenting their plans and concepts for achieving this at the Green City Marketplace.
With its ‘Immediate Clean Air Programme for 2017-2020’, the German government is helping cities and municipalities to improve their air quality. The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) provided funding for municipalities to draw up strategic Green City Plans as part of a strategic long-term approach to achieving ‘sustainable urban mobility’.
Municipalities submitted 64 Green City Plans in all. These include such things as comprehensive analyses of the current transport and air quality situation, as well as ideas and proposals for digitalising infrastructure, local public transport, the electrification of transport, measures for pedestrian and bicycle transport, and urban logistics.
The Green City Marketplace and its integrated BMVI stand will be presenting flagship projects from various German cities and municipalities at Hypermotion. Additional flagship projects from the State of Hesse will be featured in a separate exhibition area. Presentations will promote communication and the exchange of knowledge between municipalities, companies and planners.
