MobiQ – Sustainable mobilities through sharing in the neighourhood

Sustainable mobility cannot be achieved through technological progress and new business models alone. Social innovations from within the civil society are just as decisive for lasting effects in terms of sustainability. The MobiQ real-life laboratory takes up this challenge and supports citizens in three locations (neighborhoods) assisting them in the shaping of their mobility needs as groups of neighbors. For this, detailed context and social network analyses were conducted in Stuttgart-Rot, Geislingen and Waldburg. They help to strengthen already existing activities and to initiate and enable new networks.

Together with the local people, measures for a sustainable transformation of the mobility culture were developed in workshops in March 2022. Access to sustainable mobility concepts for disadvantaged groups, better networks within the districts, support for active forms of mobility, and a more efficient use of existing resources are the different focal points at the three locations. For example, as part of the Fleiner Zukunft project, Fleiner Straße in Rot has been repurposed temporarily twice already, the Geislinger Einkaufsshuttle has already transported 1,500 passengers, and the Waldburger Mitfahrapp was extended to the district. This is how we create impulses for the mobility transition in urban neighborhoods and rural areas!

The interdisciplinary project team is based at the NGU - Nürtingen-Geislingen University of Applied Science, the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences (HFT) and the Öko Institut e.V. The team works closely together with other associations, initiatives, authorities, etc. MobiQ brings together research and practice to work hand in hand for the successful transformation towards sustainable mobility in Baden-Württemberg.
