Urban Transport Group is pleased to be supporting the Sustainable Transport and Health Conference, taking place on 23-24 February 2017 in Bristol.
Transport is among the key issues determining whether a person leads a healthy life. Physically active modes of transport – walking and cycling, combined with public transport – offer an alternative to the sedentary lifestyles that cars encourage. They are among the cheapest, most accessible ways of getting active.
Transport also connects people to healthcare and health-promoting activities and helps people to stay independent for longer. The transport choices we make also affect air quality and our mental wellbeing.
This two-day conference offers the opportunity to explore these connections and will showcase a diverse range of sustainable travel and behaviour change initiatives that are enabling active, healthier lifestyles.
