Let’s Active Travel: Benefits to health and planetary health

12.00-13.30 27 April 2023

In this lunchtime session, join the discussion on why active travel (i.e – walking and cycling) is good for mental, physical and planetary health. The transition from environments dominated by motorised vehicles that are often not safe for walking and cycling, to urban landscapes that enable people to walk and cycle, can also bring socioeconomic advantages such as reducing inequalities and empowering women, the elderly, and children. Our esteemed guest speakers include Chris Billington (ADPH-London), Dr Adrian Davis (UWE-Bristol), Dr Andy Cope (Sustrans)
