Thursday 29th September 2022, Engine Shed, Bristol
Mobility Camp (previously Transport Planning Camp) is back for its 5th year! This annual volunteer run unconference brings together transport planners, modellers, engineers, technologists, social activists, academics and others interested in discussing and coming up with solutions to ongoing challenges in the transport sector.
At an unconference, only the theme and rooms are set up by the organisers. The sessions are suggested and decided upon by attendees on the day. It provides everyone with the opportunity to shape the event, so be prepared to get involved and have some fun!
This year's theme is 'Backing Sustainable Transport.'
Transport remains the UK’s largest emitting sector for greenhouse gases, representing 27% of the UK’s annual Carbon Emissions. We need to change the mindset and the approach to both public and private transport to hit the country's net-zero priority – but how????
At Mobility Camp, we don’t just want to debate and share openly in a highly collaborative event. We want to do. We are planning an event where transport planners, engineers, pressure groups, communities, policy makers, and politicians can get together and decide what needs doing, by when, and how we will all work together to do it. We can then make a start on it, there and then. We want you to be part of this!
Mobility Camp is a great opportunity to meet new people, expand your network, share your experience and views, and contribute to one of the transport sector's most challenging yet crucial conversations.
“My first-time attending transport planning camp was as a student and that made me want to join the organizing team this year. As a student often it is difficult to interact with professionals and get your ideas out there. Attending transport planning camp helped me present my views and ideas on various topics to professionals at all levels and made me understand what is ambitious as a young professional as to what is a physically viable goal at industry standards of working. It was a really fun day where I was able to speak freely without the fear of being judged for saying the wrong things and learned from a lot of different people in different sectors of the transport industry. I urge all students who are interested in the transport industry and would like to pursue a career in it to attend to get a feel of the way we can shape things moving forward.”
“An engaging conversation with transport professionals from many backgrounds and experience levels that stimulated a lot of good ideas on improving transport systems with the environment in mind."
Mobility Camp will take place on Thursday 29th September 2022 at the Engine Shed in Bristol. Engine Shed is located right next to Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station, which has links to both local and national rail and bus services.
