Modifying transport behaviour course starting in the new year. Register your interest now.
The University of Westminster and Active Travel Academy are delivering the second run of its ‘Modifying Transport Behaviour– theory, practice and politics’ module, online, starting in January.
Modifying transport is a timely contribution to our understanding of an essential transport subject.
We know that our current travel habits have very significant downsides in terms of road safety, greenhouse gas emissions, air quality etc. We also know that these habits have on the whole proved very difficult to change. But the pandemic has shown how adaptable people actually are. Meanwhile, practice is continuing to evolve: we are getting better at working out what does or does not have a positive impact, and why.
This timely course will provide a thorough insight into the state of the art of modifying behaviour in transport, from well-established interventions (such as speed limits) to relatively new ones (such as subsidy of active travel). It will take participants through the theory and evidence supporting the use of behaviour-change interventions and equip them with the skills to assess interventions critically and to develop them methodically.
The course will run online on Wednesday evenings, from 17:30 to 20:30 (UK time), for 12 sessions beginning 26th January 2022.
