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 PlansT 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.
On site at Hypermotion
The German government takes advantage of the platform offered by Hypermotion to create numerous opportunities for personal interaction at the ‘Green City Marketplace.’ The cities present the progress and further steps of their ongoing flagship projects. Everyone involved has a common goal: to align the realm of public traffic and transport to the changing mix of individual and public transport, including logistics transport. Making sure that environmentally-friendly means of transport are given the necessary space is another shared aim.
Additional flagship projects from the State of Hesse will be featured in a separate exhibition area.
NaKoMo – new digital networking platform for clean air
With its new ‘National Competence Network for Sustainable Urban Mobility’ online platform, also known as ‘NaKoMo’, launched in mid-2019, the BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) is promoting the networking between cities and municipalities that is of such importance to the ‘Immediate Clean Air Programme for 2017-2020’.To NaKoMo
