The report of the Transport and Health workshop is now available here: Active travel workshop report final. Thank you to all workshop participants for your contributions. We hope this report provides a useful concise summary of our discussions on the day. Links to the presentations are provided as hyperlinks within the report.
The infographic Climate change as a catalyst for sustainable transport infographic has been inspired by our workshop discussions. It illustrates how climate change can act as a driver for sustainable transport and how sustainable transport can support climate change mitigation.
We believe that the report can support discussions about how we create a more sustainable, healthier and inclusive transport system in Scotland.
