Future of Transport - John Fagan, Chief Executive Officer at Scribe

Wednesday 11 January 2023, 10.00am - 11.30am, Cost £25.00 or £12.50 with small council bursary

Transport is the biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, with domestic transport (in the form of personally owned cars), being the biggest offender. This presentation looks at transport from the climate change perspective. It will discuss how local councils can use their contacts and enthusiasm for support of climate change initiatives to encourage and work with others towards reducing transport emissions. The session will also give a whistle-stop tour of new modes of transport that are challenging the car, including bikes, e-bikes, e-scooters, small electric vehicles, and self-driving.
