MCube Speaker Series: Future of Mobility

A lecture series presented by the openLAB Urban Mobility (TUM) and the MCube Cluster in cooperation with the Deutsches Museum - Verkehrszentrum

Future of Mobility is a lecture series that will present diverse topics in mobility in a monthly rhythm. The lectures will be held by various speakers from different fields, which provides a wide and interdisciplinary range of topics. From laypersons to students and specialists: all those interested in the topic are invited. The series Future of Mobility replaces the previous lectures series "Verkehr aktuell". 

Afterward, the openLAB Urban Mobility invites to a regulars' table, where the presented topic, as well as other mobility topics, can be discussed in an informal and casual setting. The regulars' table will take place at the Wirtshaus Am Bavariapark (address: Theresienhöhe 15, 80339 Munich), which is adjacent to the traffic center.

Film Screening: A HUMAN RIDE

The transition in transportation is on everyone's lips, and mobility of the future has become one of the trend topics. But why is this important at all? If transportation presents us with such great challenges, why don't we just stay home? Is mobility perhaps a basic need?

Director Kristian Gründling set out to explore this very question, venturing onto the streets, to train stations, onto trains, into parks, at gas stations, into garages, to taxi drivers, into research institutions, into cities, and to rural areas. With camera and microphone in hand, he delved into the personal perspectives on everyday mobility. Exciting shifts in perspective, revealing connections, and emotional life realities make this film itself a movement. The film is not an appeal and does not offer direct solutions. A HUMAN RIDE is a cinematic journey into the primal human need to be on the move.
