Talk synopsis: A public health perspective on transport, health, equity and carbon emissions
Reducing carbon emissions in the transport sector will be one of the great challenges of the next 30 years. The current transport system doesn’t serve many people well. It causes substantial ill-health and is inequitable in the distribution of both the benefits and the harms of the system. Transforming the transport system to become low carbon offers as a unique opportunity to think about the kind of transport system and cities we really want and to create a system that is healthier and fairer. This talk offers a perspective, from a public health viewpoint, on some of the key areas that we need to grapple with to start creating a better transport system that supports us all.
