Event description

Description

Keith Taylor, Green MEP for the South East, will mark World Car Free Day with a public meeting in Brighton to discuss sustainable mobility strategies. World Car Free Day promotes investment in public transport, cycling and walking, and the development of communities where jobs and shopping facilities are within walking distance of where people live.

Earlier this year Keith visited academics at the University of Brighton’s groundbreaking air quality monitoring station to launch the Green MEPs’ “Polluted Cities” report.

On 22 September, Keith, a vocal air quality campaigner who sits on the European Parliament's Transport and Environment committees, will be returning to his home city of Brighton & Hove for World Car Free Day. He will be joined by Kia Trainor, Director at CPRE Sussex, and Norman Baker, Managing Director of bus company The Big Lemon, who will share his experience that doing the right thing for the environment can also be profitable.

The meeting coincides with a public consultation on a proposal for a nearby and highly controversial Arundel bypass and will also be an opportunity to look at the A27 proposals and discuss alternatives that could bring real and tangible benefits for people in Arundel and across the country.

The event is free and open to all, but spaces are limited so please register on Eventbrite.
