Sustainability is a hot topic for industries across the board. As we all become more conscious of our impact on the surrounding environment, many of our traditional approaches to work and life need to be reassessed.
For the transportation industry, the topic has spurred a wave of discussion around how to achieve the best outcomes for societies of the present and future. More than just thinking about solutions to today’s issues, it’s about anticipating and accounting for the issues that will arise tomorrow.
With E-mobility being heralded as "the way of the future", bike schemes taking over cities around the country and cramped commuters being encouraged to seek alternative routes, it’s no surprise that people are beginning to pay more attention to sustainable transport and infrastructure.
We’re pleased to be partnering with The Sustainability Society and the Transportation Group New Zealand to provide an ongoing series of webinars focused on some major themes in today’s transport landscape.
Courses on offer this year as part of the series include:
- 22 November - Travel demand management
- 5 December - Use of sustainability in transport projects
- 18 December - An integrated view of roads and water
Featuring some of New Zealand’s top minds on the subjects, these webinars will be a chance to have a collaborative, informative discussion with the presenter as they explore research and examples with the viewers.
Among the speakers are Technical Director of Sustainability at AECOM, Kerry Griffiths; WSP Opus’ Sector lead for Smart Mobility and Advisory, Louise Baker; Morphum Environmental’s Southern Sector Manager, Stu Farrant; Tonkin+Taylor's Principal Transport Planner, Alan Gregory and Environmental Science Service Leader at Pattle Delamore Partners, Ed Clayton.
