Der Landkreis Oldenburg weist durch seine Pendlerbeziehungen ins Umland eine starke Mobilitätsproblematik auf. Neue Konzepte sind erforderlich, um die Herausforderungen, die in diesem Bereich bestehen, in den kommenden Jahren angehen zu können. Zum Thema „Mobilität im ländlichen Raum“ veranstaltete die CDU in Wildeshausen unter Beteiligung des NEMo Projektes (Nachhaltige Erfüllung von Mobilitätsbedürfnissen im ländlichen Raum) eine Diskussionsrunde mit Praktikern und interessierten Bürger:innen.

Johannes Schering und Cedrik Theesen stellten die wichtigsten Ergebnisse des 2020 abgeschlossenen Projektes vor. Prof. Jorge Marx Gómez war online zugeschaltet, um weitere Einblicke in die Forschungsarbeit zu geben. Die Fahrkreis-App verknüpft den ÖPNV sowie weitere Mobilitätsangebote mit privaten Verkehren. Bürger:innen können so das verfügbare Angebot erweitern, was für viele Institutionen (z.B. Betriebe, Schulen) interessant sein kann, um der Herausforderungen der Mobilität im ländlichen Raum und der starken Abhängigkeit vom privaten Pkw entgegen wirken zu können. Auch der Fahrradverkehr spielt beim Mobilitätswandel eine wichtige Rolle. In diesem Kontext wurden auch die Projekte SmartHelm und INFRASense den interessierten Zuhörer:innen vor Ort und im Internet näher gebracht.

Die Wildeshauser Kreiszeitung hat zu der Veranstaltung einen Artikel veröffentlicht, den Sie hier finden können.


27.04.2022: „MobiLe - Mobilitätswende @ Lebensqualität“ Kick-off Meeting

On April 27th, 2022, Kick-off Meeting for „MobiLe - Mobilitätswende @ Lebensqualität“  project took place in presence at the University of Oldenburg. The cooperation partners Stadt Norderstedt and associated partners Mosche Design attended to this kickoff meeting. Tasks achieved in Phase 1 and goals to reach in Phase 2 are addressed at this meeting. Furthermore, certain MobiLe-related projects (SmartHelm, INFRASense) were discussed, and online meetings will be held regularly to share information about other relevant projects.

This research project mainly aims to provide a novel decision support tool for transport-related decisions that consider the transport system together with other aspects of a qualitative urban development aiming at sustainability in their systemic interaction.

The VLBA's main responsibilities for this project are to develop and host a website and web app that enables local politicians to perceive and consider the complexity and interdependencies of the municipal transport system (better) through easy-to-use software. It will also enable local politicians to assess the complex impacts of transportation-related decisions independently and at an early stage.

Partners involved

  • Stadt Norderstedt      
  • Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg 

Associated Partners

  • MOSCHDESIGN
  • e-fect dialog evaluation consulting eG

The overall project is managed by the Stadt Norderstedt as an in-house effort.
