Speaker Series #2 - Katja Diehl x Katrin Habenschaden

Do you want to or do you have to drive a car?" - Katja Diehl opened the evening of the second SpeakerSeries "Future of Mobility" with this exciting question. It turns out that answering this question is not so easy. The fact is that many people don't have the option of being mobile without a car, and that's exactly what Katja Diehl wants to do. 

"How does it look with us in Munich, we have heard what would be beautiful, now let's hear what is beautiful here" - with this sentence, second mayor Katrin Habenschaden introduced her vision for mobility in Munich. The aspect of where Munich currently stands in terms of mobility was not neglected. There is still a lot to do for the future, but the first start has been made. Although the city's hands are tied in many decisions, such as parking fees, the audience also commented in the discussion that the current pace of the mobility revolution is too slow.

Together with 200 guests, they then discussed what the city of tomorrow will look like.
