Transport Systems that Protect Health and Climate
It is widely acknowledged that a changing climate will have a significant negative impact on human health. Tackling transport emissions will have significant positive impacts on air pollution. But the benefits of transforming mobility to sustainable, low carbon paradigms spam across the wide notion of planetary health on which our civilization depends and in which human health and the health of our planet are inextricably linked.
Whether it is curbing emissions, reducing deaths and injuries in road crashes, enabling healthy lifestyles with walking and cycling, supporting mental health with reclaimed streets for community life or better integrating urban spatial and transport planning for place-making; the nexus across transport-air pollution-health is a multiplier.
SLOCAT strives to collaborate beyond the transport community, to showcase mutually-reinforcing results across this nexus.
