WeCount – involving citizens as scientists for sustainable mobility

Are you passionate about how we get around our city in a way that causes minimal damage to the environment? Do you want to hear how you and your community can play a part in a sustainable future? Then this session is for you.

First, hear from UWE-Bristol’s WeCount team on the benefits of citizen science in addressing real-world urban mobility issues – using Telraam technology to count walkers, cyclists, and road traffic in your area. Then, celebrate the launch of an exciting new project related to sustainable mobility in Bristol: CarFreeCities, an initiative by Possible that hopes to produce a vision for a private car-free city and deliver bottom-up street level changes to reduce traffic.

Leave with new ideas and inspiration to take your campaigning on sustainable mobility to the next level.
