Dobbiaco Colloquia 2006
A New Culture of Mobility
From Auto-Mobility to Multimodalità in the Solar Age
Sept 21, to Sept 23 2006
The 2006 Dobbiaco Colloquia
After the Dobbiaco Colloquia from 1985 to 1999, a new cycle of Dobbiaco Colloquia began in 2005 within the framework of the EU project HERMES. Against the background of fossil fuels that are being exhausted, the new central idea of the Dobbiaco Colloquia is the coming of the "Solar Age" as the comprehensive draft of civilization, as possibly the only option for the future but also a fascinating challenge.
The new mobility is a state of mind and is therefore a cultural challenge. The 2006 Dobbiaco Colloquia "A New Culture of Mobility" hopes to show how the mobility of today that is primarily based upon the automobile can and must move to multimodality, that is, to several options of means of transportation in order to also prepare itself for the coming of the solar age. The conference will present comprehensive approaches of a new culture of mobility and will describe the various components of multimodality by way of good examples from practice. These approaches range from pedestrian mobility through bicycle mobility and public transportation all the way to the control of private mobility, mobility services, mobility management, information, and marketing.
The conference hopes to connect the strategies with exemplary concrete solutions in the various sectors of mobility. These will show that a change is possible in the mobility culture and is already being practiced in a number of places with great success.
The Dobbiaco Colloquia Academy draws upon the original concept of Hans Glauber, who launched the first edition in 1985. The Academy is a think tank for ecological innovation. Its mission is to implement the knowledge and principles emerging from the colloquia through the elaboration of future-oriented development models. Since the summer 2003, the meetings of the Dobbiaco Colloquia Academy have taken place at the sumptuous Grand Hotel.
The 2006 Dobbiaco Colloquia: A "Climate-Neutral" Conference
The Dobbiaco Colloquia also produces CO2 emissions itself. One need only think of the travel and lodging of the participants, the printing of materials, the sending of invitations, the organizational activities, etc., the total energy consumption of which is estimated to create 14 tons of CO2 emissions. In order to offset this impact on the global climate, the decision was made to invest in a solar project in the Himalayas. In this way, the Dobbiaco Colloquia may well be the first conference to be held in Italy with no impact upon the climate. This will hopefully provide encouragement to participants who should nevertheless attempt to plan their travels as ecologically as possible.
