Katja Diehl has acquired expertise on sustainability with a focus on future mobility throughout her professional career. The mantra of her work is: “Everyone should have the right to live a life without owning a car. She writes a blog, runs the podcast “SheDrivesMobility” and is active on social media as well as on stage. She is also involved in the national board of Verkehrsclub Deutschland e. V., in the Hamburg representation of womeninmobility and as an advisor to the Austrian Minister for Climate Protection. Her book “Autokorrektur. Mobilität für eine lebenswerte Welt ” will be published in 2022. Her core competence is to turn things upside down in a communicative way – in favour of a human-centred change in transport.
Katja Diehl’s vision for the future is a child-friendly, climate-friendly, accessible, decelerated mobility that aims for equality. Privileges for cars should be reduced and parking spaces and streets should be designed primarily for cyclists and pedestrians. She sees a change in attitude and behaviour as the greatest challenge of the transport revolution.
