Agora Verkehrswende is a think tank that focuses on climate protection strategies for the transport sector. For this purpose, Agora engages with key players from politics, business, science and civil society. The aim of our work is to lay the foundations for achieving climate-neutrality in the German transport sector by 2045. In addition, Agora Verkehrswende is active in various international projects.

  • be competent in the use of MS Office programs (in particular Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook),

  • be fluent in Chinese and English/have very good Chinese and English command, knowledge of German is preferable but not mandatory.
