  1. Sustainable Education

1.1 Curriculum for geography in Berlins
secondary schools
  • Education for Sustainable Development
  • plays an important role
  • for a deeper understanding the strategies of
  • sustainability should be put into action by
    pupils

4
  • Learning about sustainability is practical
  • learning

- positive examples - experiences -
environment - friendly
  • practical learning in everyday life learning
  • process becomes more plausible
  • That means for our students
  • active participation in and organization of
  • school life
  • responsible consumption
  • acting in solidarity towards the disadvantaged
  • asking questions concerning the future

5
1.1.1 Geography Grade 11 Mobility and
Transport
  • geography projects in 11th grade study of the
  • future capabilities of the Berlin public
    transport
  • system
  • understand sustainability in traffic
  • sustainable development economic, ecological
  • and social system are coordinated in a way that
  • the natural basis of life is preserved for
    future
  • generations
  • sustainability in traffic
  • -minimize damages and risks for the environment
  • a long-term preservation of the natural basis of
  • living is ensured


6
  • protection of flora and fauna
  • economically, traffic should contribute to
  • guaranteeing jobs and economic success
  • shortage of natural and financial resources
  • consistently improve efficiency

2. Mobility and Transport in Berlin
2.1 Transport situation in Berlin
  • until 1939 an efficient transport system of
  • trains, subways,trams and buses developed
  • separation of transport system in 1949
  • different development in both parts of the city
  • 1990 Berlin became the capital city two
  • transport systems had to be joined together
  • big economic and technical challenge the
  • opportunity to mind a sustainable development
  • of transport in Berlin and its surroundings

8
2.2 Change of traffic parameters
  • Most local authorities of metropolises are
  • confronted with increasing problems of
  • congestion and pollution due to the steady
    growth
  • of urban motorized traffic.
  • emissions of carbon dioxide, air pollution and
    noise
  • - carbon dioxide emissions increased from
  • 17.2 to 22.9 between the years 1990 and 2000
  • by 2010 transport will be the largest single
  • contributor to greenhouse gas emissions

2.2.1 Dilemma of traffic policy
  • wrong reaction to the increase in traffic
  • extension and improvement of the road network
  • declining demand for public transportation
  • would set off a downward spiral leading to a
  • greater volume of motorized traffic and there-
  • fore a higher burden on the environment

2.3 Transport development planning
2.3.1 mobil2010
  • Berlins new urban transport development plan

Public and non-motorized transit is attractive,
comfortable, simple to use and is well-adapted
to the routines of everyday life.
21

  • during the last decade
  • S-Bahn serves the city area of Berlin
  • connects it with the surrounding region
  • rapid city transport system provides high
  • transport capacities
  • is able to move large flows of traffic over
  • large distances at high speeds
  • about 1 million passengers use the 16 lines
  • every day

25
2.4.2 BVG Berlin Transport Company
The BVG provides subways, buses, trams and
ferries.
U Bahn (Subway)
26
  • started in 1902 one of the most modern
  • subway systems in all of Europe
  • well-known for its high levels of performance
  • emphasis on environmental responsibility
  • nine subway lines 152 kilometers

27
Buses
28
  • January 1847 first bus company with 20
  • carriages and 120 horses serving 5 lines
  • 1929 more than 620 buses
  • today
  • 150 daytime bus lines
  • 54 night lines
  • length of the Berlin bus network amounts to
  • 1626 kilometers during the day
  • in the inner city are special bus lanes
  • can only be used by buses, taxis and bicycles

29
1898
Trams
2005
30
  • Trams are a major feature of the landscape
  • in many parts of the city
  • 187.7 km of tram tracks in Berlin
  • Trams feature
  • - outstanding speed
  • safety
  • punctuality
  • reliability


The environmental friendliness of the trams is
especially important for the highly polluted
inner city.
31
2.4.3 Umweltkarte Environment Ticket
  • the VBB offers the Umweltkarte (Environment
  • Ticket) available as a monthly or yearly pass
  • you can use buses, trams, subways, urban trains
  • and ferries

  • to buying day tickets, can used around the
    clock
  • pass is transferrable
  • on weekdays from 8 pm to 3 am and on weekends
  • you can take along one adult or three children
  • free of charge
  • for a small charge you can take along your bike

32
2.5 Conclusion
  • The share of motorized individual transport in
    Berlin is still too high. Especially the inner
    city area must be relieved from burdens of
    traffic conditions such as noise and exhaust
    fumes. The City Administration has developed
    different plans supporting non-motorized
    transport.

33
Some of the measures are
  • - bike ride facilities at rail and subway
    stations
  • - park ride facilities
  • - transport of bikes on trams and trains
  • - priority signaling for trams

The catalogue of measures must still be developed
further with respect of sustainability.
