Decarbonising Transport: How do we work together to make an impact?

online event
Thursday 11 November 2021 (19:00-20:00)
Decarbonising transport

We need bold and significant action within the transport sector if the UK is to meet its net-zero ambitions. While the climate change challenge is global, there is real opportunity and need to act locally on transport to make significant progress.

However, the changes we need to make are difficult and potentially controversial. This interactive session will draw on recent research across UK city regions, to open discussion about how organisations and communities can work together to create meaningful change. The event will explore the opportunities and challenges we face and the strategies we can employ to make sustainable transport a reality. 

This panel session draws on research from the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) to open up discussion about how organisations and communities can work together to create sustainable transport systems in cities across the UK. The session will be interactive, aiming to hear your views on how we can work together to create change, and identify challenges, opportunities and strategies we can employ to make real change towards sustainable transport a reality.

CREDS researchers Louise Reardon and Timea Nochta (University of Birmingham) will be joined on the panel by Karen Creavin, CEO The Active Wellbeing Society and Chris Todd, Director, Transport Action Network.

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences. Spanning the month of November a range of interactive virtual and physical events will be free and open to the public - find out more about our other events as we discuss Our Changing World!
