New Emscher Mobility - Developing Integrative Scenarios towards a Sustainable Mobility in the Ruhr Valley

Brief description

The project 'New Emscher Mobility' (NEMO) examines opportunities for innovative interconnections that foster sustainability in the so called Emscher channel region as part of the Ruhr Valley. Focusing on three or four characteristic local areas, NEMO will survey sustainable mobility potentials against the background of specific urban spaces and their particularities. NEMO aims at developing integrative scenarios covering new interfaces for day-to-day, commuter, or leisure time mobility with a specific focus on multi-modal traffic options.

In terms of implementation, the integrated NEMO scenarios will provide support to decision-makers engaged in mobility policy and planning. NEMO findings are supposed to be a strategic knowledge base for regional and municipal actors involved in developing, prioritizing, and scheduling innovative mobility concepts for the Emscher channel region. Moreover, ideas for new mobility patterns will be generated by integrating residents of the three or four focal areas into the scenario development.

DIALOGIK contribution

DIALOGIK contributes to NEMO in the following two ways. First, DIALOGIK is involved in detailing the overall project design, data search and data analysis, the identification of criteria, and the development of integrative mobility scenarios. Second, DIALOGIK is responsible for designing, conducting, and analysing expert workshops and citizen focus groups.
