Car-free day – Theme day on mobility, movement and space justice

For the Europe-wide »car-free day« on September 22, 2021, the Urban Planning Professorship at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar invited children, students, employees and residents to a theme day on mobility, exercise and space justice. The university car park on the south campus between Bauhausstraße, Berkaer Straße and Belvederer Allee was brought to life with various activities such as asphalt chalk painting, table tennis, Frisbee golf, cargo bike test rides, exhibition, music and open-air cinema.

The car-free day was introduced in 2000 by the then EU Commissioner for the Environment, Margot Wallström. The city and the Bauhaus University of Weimar took part for the first time in 2021. The event took place as part of the European Mobility Week, which has developed into an action week for sustainable transport projects across Europe

Mobility-led urban redevelopment is a gain for the city: it creates space for the residents, who benefit from the recovery of public space. The professorship in urban planning deals with the question of how this change is taking place, how the city is changing as a result of new models of urban mobility
