An e-scooter tour visiting architectural highlights on Campus Vaihingen, a bike repair event, and an online discussion on the topic of "active mobility": the University of Stuttgart is participating in the first Stuttgart Mobility Week with three events, from September 16 to 22, 2021. The university aims to promote and encourage the conscious use of all forms of mobility and will be offering Stuttgart residents a series of opportunities to test new means of transport for everyday use and to get excited about sustainable mobility.
An overview of the University of Stuttgart's events:
September 20, 2021, 3:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
E-scooter tour of Campus Vaihingen that will be visiting various architectural highlights.
Prof. Klaus Jan Philipp from the Institute of Architectural History at the University of Stuttgart will be taking you on a discovery tour, delivering some exciting insights into the architectural highlights on the campus. And, Campus Vaihingen has much more to offer than it might seem at first glance. Prepare to be amazed! What's special about this tour is that we won't be walking across the campus, but exploring it on e-scooters.
The number of spaces is limited to 20. Therefore, please register in advance for this special campus tour by sending a short email to the University of Stuttgart’s mobility manager Laura Schlowak. Registration by email is mandatory. In accordance with the hygiene concept, the 3G rule applies, i.e. participants must be vaccinated, recovered or tested and be able to show proof of this at the beginning of the event.

Active Mobility – today and in the future!
September 20, 2021, 5:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.
This online info event is part of the URBANOME
project and will briefly introduce this Europe-wide project, which focuses on promoting health and well-being in cities. This will be followed by an interactive discussion on the topic “active mobility”: what exactly do participants think this is, and which specific changes would they like to see take place in Stuttgart?
URBANOME stands for Urban Observatory for Multi‐participatory Enhancement of Health and Wellbeing. The overall goal of URBANOME is to promote health, well-being and quality of life in cities by systematically integrating health concerns into urban policies and the everyday activities of city residents*. To this end, an Urban Living Lab (Reallabor) will be set up in Stuttgart to help the city devise solutions to specific and complex challenges, working together with citizens, science and business.
This event will take place during the Stuttgart Mobility Week and kicks off the URBANOME project launched in March, which is being funded as part of the EU's Horizon 2020 program and in which the University of Stuttgart's Institute of Energy Economics and Rational Energy Use (IER) and the Center for Interdisciplinary Risk and Innovation Studies (ZIRIUS) are involved.
Mobility is a key aspect of this project: mobility is a cause of air pollution, but it can also make a valuable contribution to air pollution control, as well as being an important aspect of personal well-being. Being mobile enables you to maintain social contacts and get to places to do things that are fun, explains Dr. Ulrich Fahl from the IER. In the development phase of URBANOME, this public event offers an excellent opportunity to talk to citizens and discuss obstacles and ideas for improving mobility.
The wheel deal: bicycle repair event
September 21, 2021, 2 p.m.–5 p.m.
The student council stuvus's bike workshop [de] and the University of Stuttgart's Mobility Management have come together to organize this bike repair event, aimed at anyone who has an old bike in their basement that they have been meaning to repair, or for anyone who simply wants to learn about bike repair for the future. This is an informal event and all you need to bring is your bike. Drinks and good vibes will be provided.
For reasons of hygiene, please register by sending a short email to the University of Stuttgart’s mobility manager Laura Schlowak. Also, please let us know when you would like to come within the specified time period. We are looking forward to seeing you there! In accordance with the hygiene concept, the 3G rule applies, i.e. participants must be vaccinated, recovered or tested and be able to show proof of this.
