Transport, Climate, Action!
March 23, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm£10
We aim to put the spotlight on the existential threat to public transport and active travel as the Government cuts funding in order to allow it to build more roads. This is while the potholes on local roads get ever bigger.
At the same time The Government has ordered Network Rail not to replace worn out infrastructure, creating a short term saving but costing more in the long term. The Government’s obsession with making things worse is seen by its determined inaction on cutting carbon quickly enough as it now admits it won’t meet its international target to cut emissions by 68% by 2030.
We also want to run some sessions to give campaigners the understanding and skills to deal with some of the disingenuous and toxic messaging that is being used against cutting traffic.
