The main idea of ‚active2work‘ is that a part of the daily travelling time (for trips from and to work) that is done actively (walking or cycling) shall be included in the working hours. We think that the ‚lack of time‘ in everyday life is one of the most important reasons for using motorized individual modes of transport instead of active modes. The sum of working- and travelling-time (for trips to and from work) should be approximately the same in all modes of transport in order to facilitate equivalent opportunities for all modes of transport and to enhance active modes. A deceleration of everyday mobility is not intended to be a burden on workers' leisure time in order to achieve the central objectives of the mobility turnaround and decarbonization in transport. Such a paradigm shift is expected to significantly and sustainably improve the acceptance and utilization of active modes of transport.
