I am contacting you regarding the Sandpit funded Travel Behaviour Network www.travelbehaviours.net<http://www.travelbehaviours.net/>
In 2013 transport accounted for about 25% of the UK's domestic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). Vehicle technologies and fuel choices can play a significant role in reducing emissions by decarbonising transport, but travel choices themselves are inherently complex.
While there is frequently a willingness to change travel behaviour, evidence also demonstrates that there is often a resistance to changing behaviours which are considered to cause a significant lifestyle change. A government public policy landscape report indicated:
"the solution to the transport challenge does not lie only in technological innovation. It is rooted in a better understanding of human behaviour"
A three year program of research comprising 5 projects, funded to the tune of £6 million, to focus upon the determinants and incentives for changing travel behaviour, habits and practice is nearing its completion.
The travel behaviour network would like to share with industry and government some of the complexity that surrounds behaviour, digital solutions that have made a difference, how to use data to reveal new patterns, and what to do to observe car miles drop by 20%.
We are organising two events:
Designing City Connections - an evening event at the Future Cities Catapult in London on 15th June 5-7.30pm
Connecting Travel - an afternoon workshop at the Transport Systems Catapult in Milton Keynes on 23rd June 12-5.30pm
It would be great if you were able to attend these events. We are also interested in engaging industry, government and the press in the events so please do feel free to forward on to anyone else who you think would be interested too.
If you have any questions or would like anymore details, please do get in touch.
