Achieving safety, sustainability and health goals in transport

16 September 2013

PACTS Conference.  Triple Whammy: achieving safety, sustainability and health goals in transport.

Wednesday October 16, 2013  Royal College of Surgeons, 35-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PE

In times of austerity, efficiency and cost effectiveness take on a greater importance. What are the synergies between safety, sustainable travel and public health? How can we use these to achieve better and more focused outcomes?

There may also be potential tensions between these three agendas. Active travel is being promoted by both the public health and sustainable travel sectors. Can safety levels keep up with the increasing numbers of vulnerable road users?

With local authorities taking on responsibility for public health, and cycling being pushed up the political agenda, this timely conference will place safety in a wider policy framework. It will bring together experts from across sectors to explore practical ways in which more joined up working can reach these goals.
