Write-up of the seventh PTRC Fireside Chat examining the transport implications of the pandemic by Professor Glenn Lyons
Over 250 people gathered together for the eighth PTRC Fireside Chat on 25 February 2021. This was an opportunity to probe whether or not the adage ‘never let a good crisis go to waste’ would apply to the pandemic, in terms of helping us to confront the even greater crisis ahead of climate change and the imperative of decarbonising transport at pace. You can watch the full recording of the event on YouTube. As the write-up below reveals, amidst the many questions and concerns, there is a determination to change course, and change in hearts, minds and actions is happening.
