From A to B? Or making A a good place to Be? (Publicity)
A workshop on sustainable transport
– and minimising the need for travel in the first place (Advert)
- members of Christian Ecology Link and its ecocell programme
- all who are interested in sustainable transport and in viewing it from a faith perspective
Saturday 12th January 2013, 10.45 am to 4.30pm
What – themes covered
- Looking to the future: Projection of the effect of a much, much higher oil price on transport, travel practices and the potential for localisation.
- Localisation: Examples of communities which have achieved a much greater degree of local provision for local need. How that can be achieved without becoming narrow-minded and insular? A Christian perspective on living locally.
- Community action: Examples from mainland Europe demonstrating how local travel systems can enhance, rather than restrict and distort, community life. Cities like Vauban (Freiberg), Hamburg, Copenhagen and Groningen.
- Journey as pilgrimage: ensuring that the travel we do is a meaningful experience. A prayerful reflection to complete the workshop.
