In this session we’ll be exploring ‘Car Brain’ the cultural blind spot that makes people apply double standards when they think driving. Professor Ian Walker, Professor and Head of School of Psychology, Swansea University and Dr Matthew Sawyer, Environmental Sustainability Consultant, SEE Sustainability will lead the session.


Professor Ian Walker: I’m really interested in making implicit things explicit, so we’ll be having a good think about the unconscious baggage that we all carry around and which might be affecting how we view transport – and what changes are possible.

Dr  Matthew Sawyer, who will contribute to the Revolutionary approaches to engaging Healthcare settings session too, will bring the statistics and findings to the discussion.
