Transport planning as a discipline and practice has supported the growth processes of western or industrialized societies by identifying, assessing, and operating their transport infrastructures. In the last 150 years it was able to solve the capacity problems arising from population and industrial growth by using some of the growing national incomes to build more or better infrastructures for the growing number of vehicles. The challenges and the time frame of the greenhouse gas (GHG) accumulation change the way our societies should respond both in terms of our speed and in terms of the scale of our actions.
This colloquium brings together transport planning researchers and practitioners to reflect on these issues. The range of issues and suggestions can help to formulate strategies strong enough to fulfill the commitments which our societies have entered.
Day 1 brings together former students and researchers of the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT). Younger academics will present on day 2, while more senior researchers and practitioners will conclude on day 3. They will reflect on their ongoing work and on their experiences. They will draw their conclusions for our policy making and planning. The open discussions during and at the close of the colloquium will help defining our agendas for the future.
