Symposium "How will we be moved?"
For the 10th screwdriver race of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, a symposium will take place that will design future scenarios for mobility. No less than leading representatives of the automotive industry, the railway, design theorists, futurologists, science fiction authors and their critical experts will discuss this topic. This also brings together the young designers who are planning the future of our mobility and those who are managing it now. At this symposium we would like to collect statements from experts who have committed themselves to mobility from different perspectives in order to discuss with them what is possible and desirable.
We have invited the following speakers:
Klaus Bischoff (Head of Volkswagen Design), Michael Erlhoff (design theorist and author), Meike Niedbal (Head of Business Development (I.SVE), DB Station&Service AG, Head of Smart Cities (PY), Deutsche Bahn AG), Stephan Rammler (Professor of Transportation Design and Social Sciences), Mobility and Futurologist, Michael Schreckenberg (Professor of Theoretical Physics, Physics of Transport and Traffic), Alan Shapiro (Media Scientist, Science Fiction Theorist)
With them we want to clarify questions like: What are possible approaches for future mobility concepts? Can future scenarios encourage us to rethink? What can design achieve for future mobility? What can universities do to solve this problem?
This event will not focus on the problems, but rather on the desirable approaches to solutions and future scenarios that will transport mobility into a future worth living.
