Climate (un)just solutions

Can electric vehicles carry us into a just mobility transition?!

This digital learning unit deals with unsustainable ways of (re)production and global injustices by using car traffic as an example. Based on a short, viral meme in video format, the unit humorously presents the CO2 emissions of car traffic, the risks of lithium mining and the advantages of car-free cities. A short text illustrates the negative effects of car traffic and also takes a critical look at electric cars. The contrast between the supposed sustainability of electric vehicles in the Global North and the actual consequences of neo-colonial lithium mining in the Global South becomes clear. In conclusion, alternatives for a socio-ecological transport transition are presented.
