PRESENTATION: Waiting six minutes for happiness

Marjan Knippenberg (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) is a scientific researcher at the Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. In 2014 she started the foundation NederlandLift to promote hitchhiking as a serious transport method. Hitchhiking is merely a forgotten option which can be a perfect solution for certain mobility problems. The foundation inspires commuters, gives information and is an enthusiastic sparring partner for political parties, townships and mobility projects, who consider some form of hitchhiking as a solution in their region. Marjan hitchhiked to and from work herself for more than two years every Wednesday. In the end, hitchhiking has a lot more to offer than just getting from A to B.
