A Future Beyond the Car - Speakers Invited - Abstract Deadline March 25th
Hello Eric, can you help circulate this to anyone who might be interested?
Can you contribute to a debate on 'A Future Without the Car'? If so, we would like to encourage you to submit an abstract to the forthcoming UK & Ireland Planning Research Conference, which will take place, in Birmingham, in September.
The conference will include a 90 minute session on: A Future Beyond the Car, arranged by Anzir Boodoo of Leeds ITS and myself. There will be four 20 minute speaking slots.
The deadline for submitting an abstract is March 25th. The sub-themes for the session are:
· Learning from carfree developments and carfree neighbourhoods already built
· The potential for carfree areas in UK cities in the short and medium term
· Planning for cities beyond the car in the longer-term
The instructions for submitting an abstract are on: http://www.curs.bham.ac.uk/planning-research-conference-2011/abstracts.shtml. I hope to hear from several of you.
