join us at the Mobilities track at the 2020 AESOP Conference at UWE Bristol (7-11 July, 2020)!
The track I am chairing with Antonio Ferreira (University of Porto) will focus on decarbonising transport – rising to the climate challenge. Following increased awareness of climate change and international commitments to tackle it, this track invites transport researchers to address the challenge of how to decarbonise transport in line with national and international commitments. This overarching theme will allow for a wide range of individual topics, touching on many different strands of transport research. However, all presentations must be suitable for a non-technical audience, some of whom will not have a quantitative background.
Topics: Climate impacts of different transport modes or activities
Planning for transport decarbonisation at the national or international level
Modal shift and behaviour change towards active travel and other low-carbon modes
Policy responses to transport and climate change
Decarbonisation and public health
Supporting technological change towards lower-carbon transport
Infrastructure to support decarbonisation, which may include electrification/hydrogen infrastructure, but also public transport, cycling and walking infrastructure
Integrating transport and land-use planning: urban intensification, transit-oriented development and research on spatial development patterns which support, or hinder, the decarbonisation of transport
New models of transport provision e.g. sharing services, mobility as a service
Improving the climate resilience of transport services
Is transport planning part of the problem or part of the solution?
Mobility research methods
