The overarching theme for this year's Act TravelWise Conference is Creating a Blueprint for a Post-Covid World - Local, Connected, Clean & Active.
The Covid landscape in transport and urbanism has brought in a host of changes – some positive, some negative and some still with a high degree of uncertainty. Rather than just letting things go ‘back to normal’ or change for the worse, we have an opportunity to shape our future according to a positive vision, building upon models developed in Paris, Melbourne and closer to home.
We have learned to appreciate the sense of place and sense of community that comes with spending more time locally. We have rediscovered walking and cycling, with councils taking steps to make active travel more viable for more journeys. We have found that so many of our previous trips were not as necessary as we had assumed.
This conference, the next step will be taken to focus on cutting-edge measures that can be introduced to support these positive trends, and to discourage a return to ‘the old normal’
The Act TravelWise Annual Conference will be held in the form of six online sessions held between 26-28 January 2021 from 10:00 - 15:00 UTC.
