Sustainable Transport + Health

Call for Papers

Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for poor health. Air pollution is responsible for more deaths than smoking. Prevention rather than cure is now government’s priority, and policy makers and planners can make a significant difference to positive health outcomes through boosting delivery of active travel and public transport schemes.

We are now inviting papers for consideration at 2020’s Public Health & Sustainable Transport Summit, taking place on 27th March at City Hall in Bristol. 

The Summit brings together central and local government decision-makers to focus on practical best practice between the public health, transport planning and urban development sectors.

A key focus will be emerging new opportunities around integrated and collaborative planning, coming forward in the National Planning Policy Framework, The Department for Transport’s updated appraisal guidance, the National Infrastructure Assessment and Public Health England’s vision.  

The 2020 programme will include the latest thinking and case studies in the following areas: 

  • Air quality initiatives

  • Delivering active travel infrastructure 

  • Behaviour change incentives 

  • Settlements that encourage activity and provide connectivity 

  • Promoting evidence-based approaches through knowledge and skills transfer

  • Cross sector collaboration: frameworks and funding 

  • Maximising co-benefits through active planning 

  • Improving the health ‘viability’ of neighbourhoods 

  • Transport equality and inclusion
