Mobility is essential in our everyday life to go to work, study, etc. What we should be aware of is the impact that the transport sector has on the climate. The transport sector is one of the main triggers for greenhouse gas emissions. The highest proportion of Emissions in this sector lies in road traffic, especially car traffic (Austrian Federal Environment Agency, n.d.). The share of total GHG Emissions in this sector was around 28% in 2021 (Climate Protection Report, Austrian Federal Environment Agency (2023). 😢

It is therefore essential to take measures to achieve the desired goal of climate neutrality by 2050. 🌍 🌿 

That’s why we came up with the idea of organizing the “Sustainable Mobility Challenge: Mobility’s Path towards a Sustainable Future”! 🥳🙌                          Here we will tackle problems from our every day in the area of mobility in groups and address economic, ecological, and social aspects. Each group will find solutions to current challenges with the support of experts from the university and companies looking for sustainable mobility. 🧠🚗🚉🌿🌍💡

At the end, the results are presented and the best three groups are selected by a jury of experts. This group will receive a goodie bag. 🤩🎉 Additionally, we will raffle off a free Membership for one year at TIM-Graz! All participants in the Sustainable Mobility Challenge can try out tim outside of the event! 🚗 🌿 The prerequisite is that you have a driving license! If the challenge is completed, all participants can receive a certificate!🥳📄🖊
