The Future of Sustainable Transport
Last year, over 60% of journeys in the UK were made by car – accounting for 77% of the distanced travelled.

Many of us depend on our cars to get to work, fulfil our caring responsibilities and make necessary trips. However, the climate crisis has made it clear that our reliance on petrol and diesel fuelled cars is unsustainable.

With the government set to ban the sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2030, are electric vehicles the way forwards? Our expert panel will consider important questions surrounding the future of sustainable transport: What attitudes need to shift? What new technology and infrastructure do we need? How can we best reduce our impact on the planet?
