4 May 2021

From electric cars to cycleways, the way we travel has been changing for a while. But what might travel look like in years to come, as we rise to the challenge of climate change? Has lockdown sped up these changes, and how are local projects getting communities walking and cycling more?

From global trends to local initiatives that are smashing barriers and helping people out of their cars. Join our expert speakers as they share their no-nonsense guide to help you make sense of the climate emergency.

In A Beginner’s Guide to the Climate Emergency… How travel is changing to beat climate change you’ll hear from four speakers, and have the chance to follow up with any burning questions:

  • Professor Nick Tyler – UCL and Co-investigator of Liveable Cities, a project looking at how to engineer low carbon UK cities

  • Vieve Ford – Director of JoyRiders, a London-based organisation empowering women through cycling

  • Carolyn Axtell – Community Organiser, #CarFreeLondon campaigner and Founder of JoyRiders

  • Mark Falcon – Chair of Clean Air for Brent, a local coalition raising awareness about air pollution

Shazia Hussain, Assistant Chief Executive at Brent Council, said: “We want to give our communities the practical information they need to come together and tackle the climate emergency. That’s what this 'Beginner’s Guide' series aims to do.”
