A mobility portal was created in the county of Hüttener Berge, since the communities there lack public transport in the evenings. In Hennef, volunteers put together a digital network that serves numerous nearby towns. In Fürstenberg/Havel, a former railway station was converted into an educational center to teach young people digital skills. And in Bad Hersfeld, the city and local residents are cooperating to collect data on traffic levels, which they can use to justify building a sound barrier.
As the four examples show, communities can develop digital solutions in a range of areas that contribute meaningfully to the lives of the people living there.
