Lectures & Discussion City to Go @ Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society, Berlin, 15 July 2019
How are the needs of different road users in urban public space negotiated?
The classic means of transport – car, bicycle, public transport and walking are increasingly supplemented and integrated with upcoming forms of mobility. Which user groups are the target of the new digitally supported and data-powered mobility services such as car sharing, ride sharing, rental bikes and electric scooters?
If digitalization and smart city technologies can increase efficiency, who benefits from the widely advertised and long-called for optimization of urban mobility and who sets the agenda for such optimization?
As users’ movements and preferences generate huge volumes of raw data, who owns this information and what is it used for?
The negotiation of mobility concepts intersects issues related to the sustainable, social, accessible and healthy city and the “city of short distances” with its compact forms of urban development. It is about the kind of city we want to live in!
City to Go addresses urban mobility in the context of digitalisation and open data. It creates a space for exchange and communication between open data experts, mobility researchers, city planners and architects as well as civil society and administrators.

„City to Go“ is introduced by the curators of the City Making Lab program, Christian Grauvogel (Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society) and Prof. Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Prof. Frans Vogelaar (Hybrid Space Lab).
* How are the needs of different road users in urban public space negotiated?
City Making Lab investigates ongoing developments at the intersection of cities and digital technology, engaging with urban mobility and public space, new patterns of space utilization for living and working, circular city, climate adaptation and healthy cities.
City Making Lab aims to bridge the gap between data and privacy experts and urbanists, architects, city makers, civil society and governance.
The leitmotif of City Making Lab – “digital macht stadt” – captures the potential of digital technology to power city development and re-define power in the city.
City to Go is part of the City Making Lab program series that focus on digitalization and the city, a co-operation between Hybrid Space Lab and Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society.
