Share this article

A national Sustainable Transport Forum is being held at the University of Gloucestershire on Tuesday November 30.
Showcasing examples of good practice it aims to encourage staff and students to travel more sustainably and includes speakers from a wide range of universities and colleges.
The event is the second in a series of national forums organized by the University and RCE Severn to tackle key sustainability issues in the higher and further education sectors. It may also be of interest to those working generally in the field of sustainable transport as many of the issues will be similar.
The RCE is a Regional Centre of Expertise in Sustainability Education, endorsed by the United Nations University and based at the University of Gloucestershire.
Co-ordinator Carol Rabbette said: “The event aims to share valuable experiences of practical projects to assist institutions in drawing up their own action plans and reducing the impacts of travel. There are a wide range of subjects for discussion, from Take a Mate car-sharing scheme at the University of Warwick, presented by their Transport Manager Graham Hine, to Park and Stride and Other Handy Ways to Increase Walking in the Workplace, by Dr Ian Murdey, Transport Co-ordinator at De Montfort University.”
Tickets for the forum, which takes place at the University’s Centre for Active Learning, are £45 per person or £20 for students, and lunch is included.
Anyone interested in attending, or finding out more information, is asked to contact Seek Pang by November 22, at [email protected]
