A Beginner’s Guide to the Climate Emergency… How travel is changing to beat climate change

About this event

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 on Thursday 20 May as they share their no-nonsense guide to help you make sense of the climate emergency.

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

This is the first in a series of ‘Beginner’s Guide’ webinars, brought to you by the newly-formed Brent Environmental Network. Each session will be designed to break down some of the meatiest climate topics.

The council is building a network of people across Brent who are committed to working together to take environmental action. For updates about future events, plus green ideas and inspiration, sign up to our mailing list: https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/UKBRENT/signup/19286
