New Date for Sustainable Transport Webinar

This free event offers the chance to hear about a range of local community-led sustainable transport projects without  leaving the comfort of your own home!

Confirmed contributors include:

Alastair Meikle of Chesterfield Cycle Campaign (CCC). CCC promotes cycle use in Chesterfield for both leisure and utility journeys.  By campaigning for a comprehensive network, they aim to improve conditions for cyclists so that cycling becomes a safer and more attractive option than car travel for local journeys. Alastair is also involved in delivering Bikeability training at 90 local schools and Inclusive Pedals, a cycling project for those who can’t ride a standard bike because of disability or age. 

Roland Strube of Hayfield Sustainable Transport (HSTL). HSTL was set up in March 2013 and has been conducting a pilot transport project to develop new transport provision based on a minibus version of a car club. The success of the pilot has lead to HSTL being involved in an EU project to develop Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in 2017. 

John Shoesmith of Transition Belper. John is a member of Transition Belper’s Transport Group which has undertaken several projects including measuring levels of local air pollution, contributing to a Neighbourhood Plan, producing a report on cycling and local cycling maps, and creating cartoons depicting what life in Belper might be like in 2050 if we tackle environmental problems.
