APPGCW: how active travel will support the Environment Bill

Webinar: 10.00 - 11.30

11 Dec 2020


** Last chance to book **

The Environment Bill is currently moving through Parliament, and is shortly to move the Report stage.

The Bill's stated aims are to:

  • build a fairer, greener, more resilient future

  • create a new and ambitious domestic framework for environmental governance

  • provide commitments to secure improvement on air quality, natural environment and biodiversity, water and resource efficiency

Active travel – non-motorised forms of transport involving walking, cycling and scooting, plus longer trips that include walking or cycling components – brings many obvious benefits to the environment and is a vital component of the transport decarbonisation solution.

Active travel is:

  • an essential element of the transition to a net-zero carbon economy, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, replacing vehicle traffic and improving air quality

  • a generator of health, economic, and social benefits

  • a contributor to economic performance by boosting the green recovery and creating a robust active travel economy

This webinar, led by the Co Chairs of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking, will explore how cycling and walking will be key elements in securing the aims of the Environment Bill
