Workshop: Havana's transport strategy: mobility, access and sustainability
Thursday, 20 June 2013 at 13:00 - Friday, 21 June 2013 at 17:30 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Cuba currently has an exceptionally low level of car ownership, providing a unique opportunity to develop its transport system differently from other countries, to demonstrate the benefits of an alternative, low carbon path to create ‘liveable cities’. With the country now undergoing profound economic and social changes, the Cuban Ministry of Transport is collaborating with University College London to explore the lessons of international experience that can inform today’s strategic policy choices. This workshop brings together two visiting Cuban researchers with British academics, consultants and practitioners to draw on the lessons from other cities around the world to mitigate the environmental, economic and social costs of urban transport development.
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
