Auto.Mobiles.Crises Work.Conversion.MoveMent. The international left-wing conference on automobilism
Long night of the Car | international forum | International Conference
"We’ll start off with a long night of the car. Following that there will be two days and evenings of discussion on the future of the automobile industry and for a different kind of mobility. What will come of the doubling of the number of cars worldwide? Why will the relocation of production and sale to the US and Asia not solve the crisis? Why are electric cars no panacea? These are some of the questions to be debated on the international conference from the 28th to the 30th of October 2010 in Stuttgart. Securing jobs and decent work, ecology and E-cars, a new post-carbon and socially just mobility, conversion and economic democracy, trains for all and Daimler, climate justice and the «United States of Automobiles», the «town without a car?» and the «car in our heads» will be some of the subjects to be treated in our struggle for a left-wing ecological and social reform alternative. Of course, this will need a sustained change of capitalism’s structure which got us into this mess in the first place! There will be talks and discussions, films and pictures, networks and ideas, concepts and controversies, utopias and alternatives. 14 workshops, three panel discussions and four key speeches will provide room and structure for talks, discussions and debates."
