Changes in the transport sector are now visibly essential. It is important to change transport policies from private car use to encouraging investment by governments in walking, cycling and safe, accessible, viable and attractive public transport for the 21st century and the second Millenium. The Green Economics Institute is working with John Stewart, Sunday Times Transport campaigner of the year and a member of the Green Economics Institute to create a workshop for creating a wave of change in transport policy and use. The true costs of current transport policy and interest groups and lobbying which skews transport policy and increases the cost rewarding activities in the economy which accelerate climate change and increase externalities making the rest of society pay for them. As the government revs up to create yet more airports, we discuss the alternatives and why this process blights whole communities and how this contributes to further runaway climate change.
