UWE to host Carbon Aware Cities: CATCH Final Conference, 13 December 2011

Issue date: 23 November 2011

The CATCH project is holding its final conference on 13 December 2011 at the University of the West of England, Bristol. UWE's Centre for Transport and Society were one of the members of this EU Framework Programme 7 project, which conducted ground-breaking research into how information about climate change and transport should be communicated. One of the key outputs from the project is an online knowledge platform designed to facilitate an holistic view of transport in order to better communicate the need for low carbon transport systems, and plan for the low carbon transport future.

The final conference will present research from the project, and present the CATCH knowledge platform in the context of a variety of co-benefits that a low carbon transport will bring to health, safety, the economy and to planning. It will demonstrate how the CATCH knowledge platform links to these different areas by providing information and improving communication between the general public and transport professionals. Presentations from experts from different fields will also detail the wider benefits of a low carbon transport future.
