Industrialization has increased the mobility of people and goods to a point where we are highly dependent on it.
Commuting to work, tourism and many other activities depend on our mobility and most often on fossil fuel vehicles. There are numerous negative side effects thereof: Noise and air pollution, accidents, fragmentation of landscapes and ecosystems. Solutions can be found in technological innovations like electric cars, the use of muscle powered vehicles like bikes and mostly in changes in our daily habits.
The following movies explore various aspects of mobility and sustainable solutions.
