Future Transport Workshop

Future Transport Workshop

On Thursday 22 October, Conservation SA will be running a 'Future Transport Workshop' to encourage sustainability discussions amongst professional groups with an interest in transport, land-use planning and associated technologies. This year we are interested in exploring the idea of 'What would a decarbonised transport system look like?'

We have a day of interactive workshops and discussions (morning and afternoon sessions) with Professor Michael Taylor, and Dr Gary Ellem, facilitated by Leigh Dalwood.

The ideas from the sessions will be collated and shared with the participants, and will also be on display for visitors to the Future Transport Festival on the following Family Fun Day, Sunday 25th October.

  • What challenges will our transport systems face in the next ten years?
  • What does the shift from fossil fuels mean for your sector?
  • How can we adapt?

Get a head start, challenge yourself, hear from experts and workshop your ideas.
