Professor Adrian Davis at TRI hosted a ‘Road Transport and Public Health: An introductory one day training workshop’ in collaboration with SCOTS (Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland) on Tuesday 2nd November. This was held online for Scottish Local Authority roads departments and Regional Transport Partnerships. The event was supported by Yvonne Lawrie and chaired by Walter Scott of Angus Council and SCOTS.
This one day training session provided a unique introduction to the links between road transport and public health. It aimed to provide attendees with the necessary insights and confidence to engage more effectively with public health professions in order to achieve transport solutions and better health outcomes through transport planning policies and interventions.
We welcomed representatives from:
- Aberdeenshire Council
- Angus Council
- Dumfries and Galloway Council
- Dundee City Council
- East Lothian Council
- East Renfrewshire Council
- Falkirk Council
- Fife Council
- Inverclyde Council
- Moray Council
- North Ayrshire Council
- Waterman Aspen
- West Lothian Council
Feedback received after the event was very positive and we are planning to organise another training workshop in the new year. If you are from a Scottish Local Authority or Regional Transport Partnership and are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to Paths For All for their continued support.
