Abstract

Vaasa Transition Arena is a workshop series carried out in autumn/winter 2018/1029. A
group of experts representing different societal sectors participated in the arena work.
The arena work is based on the Transition management approach according to which the
direction and pace of transitions can be influenced through systematic efforts. The topic
of Vaasa Transition Arena was future mobility.
This report (in Finnish) present the results of the transition arena according to the arena structure.
Initially, transition drivers, challenges and uncertainties were identified. Next, the vision
was discussed and captured in four change targets. As a further step, transition pathways
from the current stage were developed to achieve the set targets. Based on the pathways,
26 immediate actions were identified in order to speed up the transition process towards
a carbon neutral Vaasa 2035.
The main messages of Vaasa Transition Arena are:
1. Public transportation ridership should be quadrupled until 2035
2. The cycling modal share should be tripled until 2035
3. Traffic emissions should be reduced by 90% until 2035
4. Coordination of planning should be taken to a new level
5. Increase the energy capital visibility in Vaasa’s daily life
6. Give low-carbon solutions the highest priority in infrastructure development
7. Put sustainable commuting/mobility on companies’ and organisations’ agenda
8. Use Transition management methods and tools to a larger extent
