Re-thinking Transport (Waves Ahead Annual Conference 2016)
Thu 10 November 2016, 17:00 – 20:30 GMT
We all travel everyday. We travel to and around work, to school, to the supermarket and to leisure activities. Travel can be for a specific reason or just to explore and enjoy. But transporting ourselves around can be challenging at times in Adur and Worthing even by foot and bicycle, let alone by car or bus, but maybe it doesn’t have to be so challenging.
The main theme of this year’s conference is local sustainable transport and will explore what we can do together in the community to improve things on a very local level to achieve better social, economic and environmental sustainability in our transport networks. In particular we plan to look at cycling, walking and public transport as an alternative to the car and find out what the barriers are to choosing alternative means of transport. We’ll also look at the future of local transport and find where the opportunities lie. Travel doesn’t need to be so expensive, frustrating, time consuming or confusing so come along and work with other partners to try and make some waves, and improve local transport and travel for everyone in and around Adur and Worthing.
