Description

Transport Now and in the Future: What are the Issues?

What are the current trends in transport and what will we be using in the future? We all use transport almost every day of our lives, but do we ever think about what we are doing? Many people worry about carbon emissions from transport, and indeed it is a major issue for the United Kingdom as it seeks to meet its commitments to the Paris Agreement. But are there other things we should consider? If we move towards having driverless vehicles what will happen to all those who earn their livings from driving? And what will happen in the developing world? What are the ethical and theological issues? How do we make sensible personal decisions about the transport we use? Come to our ground-breaking conference and hear what the experts have to say on all these topics and more!
