This training's main objective is to introduce to gender and its relevance for urban mobility planning

  • Developed by: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit
  • Level of Expertise: Fundamental
  • Language: English
  • Keywords: Gender, Planning
  • Time (minimum): 1h


This training set structurally approaches the correlation between gender and mobility planning. In particular, the definition, relevant concepts, and fundamental approach to gender are presented, followed by a thorough examination of gender responsiveness's political relevance, focusing on the mobility planning context. While mobility experiences are undeniably not gender-neutral, this issue has been consistently overlooked in mobility planning. As a result, there is a rising demand to integrate a gender perspective into different content of mobility policies. Moreover, this training set utilises practical examples and interactive activities to emphasise the relevance of gender for mobility further.

  • Discuss the broader context of diversity
