Transport in a Climate Emergency
Thursday 25th June, 12pm-4pm, Glasgow Women’s Library
All on board for a sustainable and inclusive Scotland?
Yes, but how are we going to get there?
In the urgent context of a global climate emergency and corrosive inequalities, what type and scale of transport investments and connections are necessary for a sustainable and inclusive Scotland?
How should we balance national infrastructure and local facilities for optimum accessibility, efficiency and cohesion?
These will be the central questions for SURF’s 2020 Annual Debate on 25.06.20 in the Glasgow Women’s Library. Key partner contributions will highlight current challenges and possibilities. A cross sector audience of regeneration practitioners, policymakers and academics will then debate the best route to ensuring that future transport investments successfully link with aspirations and assets in the presently less well connected communities across Scotland.
As with the rest of SURF’s 2020 activities, the outcomes will help inform SURF’s 2021 Manifesto for Regeneration – https://www.surf.scot/projects/2021-surf-manifesto/
