  • @MariaSolTADEO thanks for your feedback! The link is working again now.

  • @NnennaIke a very good question! At Women Mobilize Women we have only started to explore this and so far concluded that without extensive qualitative research it's impossible to properly establish the link and understand how intersectionality ultimately affects mobility decisions and behaviour. But happy to learn more about it and discuss!

  • Thanks for sharing these insights into your journey!

  • Hello All, we have published all results and the methodology including all questionaires and raw data sets of this study here: https://genderdata.womenmobilize.org/

    Do you know best practise example of gender-disaggregated data collection in our sector? Please post them here :)

  • What would you say are the biggest challenges in Yaounde?

  • We hope you’ll find this course useful for your research work! We would definitely be keen to learn more about your research project on mobility in Yaounde. Would you be willing to share some insights in the topic and focus questions?

  • Great to have you hear! Do let us know what you think about the course and how useful it is for professional context.

  • Thanks for joining this course. We are very happy to have you all here!

  • @LucasSchwarz Lobbyism and lack of political will! my opinion.

    Germany has a very torn society: some a pro-„Verkehrswende“ and others prefer to do „business as usual“. This divide doesn’t go unnoticed by politicians.

  • To give this learning step a happier ending I am sharing with you the urban transformation story of the Spanish medium-size city Victoria gasteiz where the city administration and citizens worked together to create an alternative story for their city:...

  • I remember when I first learned about the phenomenon of “induced demand” back at university. It blew my young mind back then ;-)

    Are you aware of the concept?

  • Very true. I’d add: perception of personal security. (Sexual) harassment in public transport is a big problem in many cities worldwide. If left unaddressed women, BIPoC, etc. will be safer using their private cars instead (if they can afford it)

  • I agree that there is a so called elite that is keen to push for motorised private vehicles in every corner of the world for the ones you can afford it.

    This neglects the other side of the coin though: who builds the roads and parking spaces for these? Who makes decisions on urban speed limits? Who decides on funding for public transport? Etc.

  • Indeed. And it doesn’t help that private cars are becoming bigger and bigger.

    Week 1 is meant as an easy entry into the topic and the self-paced learning style. We hope you enjoyed it! See you in Week 2!

  • Viviane Weinmann made a comment

    Did we miss out on other terminology that is essential when talking about sustainable mobility?
    Let us know here!

  • Welcome everyone!

    My name is Viviane, based in Frankfurt / Germany and I’m a transport planner working at TUMI. Before moving to Germany I spent a couple of years in South East Asia, primarily Singapore, working as a transport modeller and in urban/ transport master planning.

    Feel free to use the Padlet Wall or just introduce yourselves in the comments...

  • Great to have you here! Looking forward to your examples and insights from all around the world!

  • Dear learners,

    welcome to the course! We are looking forward to start this journey into the world of sustainable transport in cities with you.

    A few useful resources to accompany you over the next weeks:

    a) Join our course / alumni Telegram Group to chitchat with previous and current learners, share information and ask questions:...

  • Welcome to Week 2! Looking forward to your thoughts and examples this week :)

  • Thank you for sharing those insights! It's great to hear how the intervention benefits citizens on a smaller budget. Do you have a website or article link on this by any chance?

  • I couldn't agree more! I wonder what needs to happen for city authorities to consider good public transit provision a necessity and baseline service to serve all citizens and contribute to greener mobility behaviours instead of a service you'd only have it makes enough money.

  • Hey Naresh, welcome! I hope you'll enjoy the course! Please share with us insights and stories from Korea throughout this course

  • Thanks for sharing this horrific example. This means pedestrian and general walkability haven't been considered in the designs at all?!

  • Thanks for sharing this example! It's always sad to hear when well intended projects (e.g. public space improvements) turn out badly
