Minister of State for Transport Baroness Kramer will be the keynote speaker at an event aiming to demonstrate how sustainable transport policies can be successfully integrated with other closely related areas in local authorities such as air quality, planning and health. Taking place at the Department for Transport in central London on September 2, the event is hosted by CIVINET UK & Ireland.
The CIVINET event will explore how best to take a joined up approach with colleagues in health, air quality, social inclusion, regeneration/economic development and climate change, featuring a range of case studies from across the UK and Europe. Baroness Kramer, will be joined by:
- Isabelle Maës - Mobility and Transport - European Commission
- Łukasz Franek, Department of Transportation Systems, Krakow University of Technology
- Stephen Watkins - Public Health, Stockport Council
- Denise Adolphe and Leyla Laksari - Smarter Travel, Haringey Council / Living Under One Sun
- Paul Mathieson - Strategic Transport & Planning Policy, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council
- Mark Barry - M&G Barry Consulting, Cardiff
- Mark Cartwright - Real Time Information Group
CIVINET UK & Ireland network Chair and Director of Transport and Environment at Lancashire County Council Mike Kirby said, “Integrating sustainable transport with other policies is vital given the increasing need to demonstrate value for money in public projects. With plenty of opportunities for networking and interactive discussion, anyone working in sustainable transport, transport planning or the overlapping policy areas will find the event useful.”
The event is now fully booked.
