California and Germany are united by a commitment to slashing GHG emissions and upholding the goals of the Paris agreement. This task poses monumental challenges for actors in the realms of politics, business, and civil society on both sides of the Atlantic. Against this backdrop, “DE.CA.rbonize Transportation – The German–Californian Conference for Zero Emission Transportation” aimed to foster cooperative ties between California and Germany and to enable the joint development of a robust strategy for the complete decarbonization of transportation by 2050.
The two-day conference, jointly organized by the Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS) at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) and Agora Verkehrswende, took place in Berlin on January 30–31, 2018. The following video gives an insight into some of the event’s highlights.
