The mega-project “Emscherumbau” in the German Ruhr area has been showing its effects for a while now: nature is returning to the urban areas, recreational paths are opening up the watercourses, and the northern Ruhr area is once again coming into focus as a region worth living in. What does this mean for the development of the region in the long turn? And how can this dynamic be successfully used for a mobility turn in the coming years?
The research project NEMO – Neue EmscherMobilität has investigated these and other questions within the last 3 years. With its cross-disciplinary approach the project has generated exciting results – for example in regard to the effects of the new attractiveness of the Emscher region on future population and employment developments, the impact of the planned cycle path network and how citizens think about their individual future mobility.
NEMO has published its findings in a brochure (German only).
Additionally, the results of NEMO will be presented to the public in the following online event:
Das Ruhrgebiet neu bewegen: Perspektiven und Szenarien für die Verkehrswende entlang der Emscher
Tuesday, November 3, 2020 | 16.00 – 18.00
The online event (in German language) will take place via Microsoft Teams. Registration is not required.
