How can we accelerate a carbon zero future while still getting from A to B? What if we had better air quality locally, not because everyone was forced to sit at home but because we managed the shift to clean transport? How do we enable communities to stay connected throughout work and play?
The transport sector is the biggest greenhouse gas emitter in the UK and the main source of these emissions is the use of petrol and diesel vehicles on our roads. With an emphasis on active travel and public transport, our panel of experts and community leaders will discuss the challenges and opportunities we face and share some exciting new projects.
Our panelists for this event:
Councillor Waseem Zaffar - Birmingham City Council Transport and Environment lead
Dan Raven-Ellison - Founder of Slow Ways, National Geographic Explorer
Jools Townsend - CEO of the Community Rail Network
Adam Tranter - Bicycle Mayor of Coventry
Dr Ian Philips - Leeds University and Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions
