With the new online database „Mobilikon“ ", the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community is launching a reference work on the topic of "mobility in rural areas". Because in many places, a lack of developed public transport services and a high dependence on cars are still a reality. Here, mobility offers that are suitable for practical use can supplement the existing options and thus immensely improve the local quality of life. State Secretary Dr. Markus Kerber presented the website to mobility representatives from all over Germany at the official launch on November 19th during a video conference.
ORCA van Loon provides films for practical examples
ORCA van Loon's task: to portray selected mobility solutions in the form of story-based short films. This resulted in nine short films that introduced pioneering proposals from various communities. These range from the PlusBus and the citizens' bus initiative in Emsdetten to the shared village car in Klixbüll in Schleswig-Holstein. In addition, animated short films were created that, apart from presenting the idea behind the new reference work, also illustrate tools that improve mobility management in municipalities.
„Mobilikon“ bundles various solutions that also serve as an incentive for mobility representatives to further develop the services offered in their local regions. The database already includes more than 250 planning, legal and financial tools, measures, aids for implementation as well as practical examples. Using the search function, mobility managers can also filter content according to their requirements.
