Sustainable transport

By SDRN on 7th March 2007
Found in: Research and Resources

The first of SDRN’s new Research into Practice workstreams launched earlier this year with a focus on Sustainable Transport.

Transport is one of the major contributors to carbon emissions and it is recognised that a significant reduction will be required to reduce emissions to sustainable levels. There are also broader problems associated with transport which have social, environmental and economic impacts: non-carbon emissions, air quality, noise, congestion, social cohesion, community severance and accessibility to a full range of service for some sections of society.

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, December 12, 2006 - 16:15

Between early 2005 and December 2006 and in conjunction with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, SDRN held a high profile series of evening lectures. Under the title 'Sustainable Development and Quality of Life', the lectures were intended to introduce innovative and challenging thinking from current research to a wider policy audience.
