Behaviour change on the road to Net Zero: carrots and sticks

Webinar: 09.30 - 11.15

24 Jun 2021


** Last chance to book **

Social change is critical to rapid decarbonisation, but can there really be a one-size-fits-all approach? How can we ensure that innovation in decarbonised transport is ready for all kinds of places – city and rural – and for different lifestyles, age groups and varying demographies?

Our speakers will explore the sticks and carrots available to us, now and in the future. Key issues include:

  • Understanding the true cost of transport: we spend huge sums on transport and travel, so how can these monies be targeted at net zero and healthy, safe and active travel?
  • Exploring the private car and its role in all our futures
  • Insights into how people wish to, and are able to, practice transport decarbonisation
  • Whether there is a case to introduce some form of national road pricing scheme – and if so, what kind of scheme or schemes?
  • The technology possibilities and challenges of introducing such scheme
  • The sorts of policy objectives that will get public support
