Why is Dresden a good place to live and work as well as a hotspot for greentech? A campaign by the state capital of Saxony takes up this question. In twelve short videos, young professionals from business and research talk about what fascinates them about their work and the city. As "Dresden Ambassadors" they are supposed to whet the appetite of other young professionals all over the world for the city.

There were numerous applications for the ambassadors' positions. Luise Wottke and Johannes Strohhäcker convinced the jury with their enthusiasm for Dresden and for their profession, and have joined the team. The two do research at the Chair of Electric Railways at TU Dresden. In their two-minute video, they give an insight into research at the "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences and their life around everyday university life.

The two doctoral students show how their work is helping to lay the foundations for tomorrow's electromobility and thus actively shaping the transport revolution. Or as the two of them and their professor Arnd Stephan are wont to say confidently: "Traffic is going electric - and we know how to do it."

In the first week, the video already had more than 4,300 views. So please share and give it a like.
