Sustainable Transport ‘Unconference’ set to return in September

The volunteer run ‘Unconference’ Mobility Camp returns for its 5th year in September.

Taking place in Bristol on Thursday 29th September, Mobility Camp is an annual ‘unconference’ that brings together transport planners, modellers, engineers, technologists, social activists, academics, and others interested in discussing and coming up with solutions to ongoing challenges in the transport sector.

At an unconference, only the theme and rooms are set up by the organisers. The sessions are suggested and decided upon by attendees on the day. It provides everyone with the opportunity to shape the event, so be prepared to get involved and have some fun! 

The focus for the 2022 Mobility Camp is ‘Backing Sustainable Transport’ – Transport remains the UK’s largest emitting sector for greenhouse gases, representing 27% of the UK’s annual Carbon Emissions. We need to change the mindset and the approach to both public and private transport to hit the country’s net-zero priority – but how?, organisers have said.

Mobility Camp is a great opportunity to meet new people, increase your network, share your experience or views, and contribute to one of transports most challenging yet crucial conversations.

James Gleave, Mobility Camp founder said ‘The 5th Mobility Camp unconference will be the biggest and best yet, with over 100 attendees from a variety of backgrounds working on ideas and solutions for arguably the transport industries most critical issues ever. Attendees will benefit from working with vastly experienced voluntary organising team, who come from leading organisations across the sector including TfGM, TRL Software, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Systra, Mott MacDonald, Esoterix, Institute for Transport Studies, PJA, Oyster Partnership and WSP.
