AET Transport and Mobility Forum

The AET Transport and Mobility Forum promotes active engagement of AET members and member-groups with each other and with other like-minded transport organisations through supporting and hosting a range of activities including online webinars, seminars and discussions on a wide range of transport and transport related topics of interest. We welcome new members and new ideas about transport and how we talk about transport.

Upcoming Events

Did COP26 Mainstream the Implementation of Sustainable Transport?

Thursday 6 January 2022
11.00 - 12.00 CET (10.00 - 11.00 GMT/WET)
Upcoming webinars are open to both the general public and AET members.

The 26th United Nations Conference of Parties for Sustainable development was held in Glasgow in November 2021. It was hailed as a last chance summit for progress on sustainability. Emissions associated with transport continue to be one of the greatest areas of concern so what can we now expect as a result of COP26?

The headline agreements from COP26 talk about collaboration and cooperation agreements, enhanced transparency on reporting, and making zero-emission vehicles the new normal. What will these mean in practice?

To start the AET webinar series in 2022 we will be considering this topic broadly by looking at what is technically achievable, politically achievable and likely to be achieved. To offer this range of perspectives we have arranged for experts to talk informally about their hopes and expectations for 2022. We have a professional at the front line of managing the changes in a large city authority and an academic setting out options and possibilities.

  • Deborah Paton – Glasgow City Council – Deborah is Group Manager for Connectivity at the Council developing the sustainable approaches for the city in which COP26 was held.
  • Carey Curtis – Professor of Sustainable Transport Melbourne and Lund University Sweden – In 2020 Carey Curtis edited the International Handbook of Sustainable Transport

The webinar is organised as the third event of the AET Transport and Mobility Forum (previously the AET Covid-19 conversations) and will be chaired by Derek Halden, from the AET Transport and Mobility Forum.

The webinar will be hosted on the WebEx platform.
