Bristol Distinguished Address Series Living and moving well together. Transport shapes our relationship with each other and with our environment. It enables people; goods and ideas to spread and flourish but it is also the biggest contributor to climate change in the UK and has poisoned the air in our cities and towns. The history of transport is often presented as a series of technological revolutions – canals; railways; the motor car. We stand on the cusp of another transport revolution. New technologies and business models are bringing electric vehicles; driverless cars; e-scooters; drones and air-taxis; and promising quicker; easier journeys; cleaner air and less carbon. But technology is only ever a means to an end. Xavier’s talk will explore how we need to rethink what we want from transport so that we can all live and move well together.
