Wednesday 21 June, central Birmingham: active travel research showcase
Researchers from the Active Travel Academy will be in central Birmingham (a venue near New St station) on Wednesday 21st June to share findings from the wide range of work they have been doing. The format of the day will be interactive, with participants invited to discuss and debate the findings presented. ATA researchers will also be asking participants to contribute their priorities for research in the coming three years.
The event will run from 10:30am to 4pm and will include refreshment breaks and lunch. We’re hoping to have a cycle ride after formal proceedings. Attendance is free.
