In response to high demand, Act TravelWise is co-ordinating TravelWise Week 2018. The week-long campaign will be held at the same time as, and in co-operation with, European Mobility Week (EMW) - 16-22 September 2018. This year's theme is 'Mix and Move!', focusing on multi-modality - the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. You are invited to get involved - whether you represent a local authority, transport operator, business, university, health care provider or even just as an individual. It's an opportunity to engage with the public and other partners broadly on the theme of transport and travel in a number of ways.
News articles about Act TravelWise and sustainable transport initiatives along with published news in the press are published here. Members also regularly submit news items covering initiatives at their organisation.
EPOMM - the European Platform on Mobility Management - has released its May 2018 e-update on the topic of 'Neighbourhood-level Transport Innovations'. It addresses research, case studies, initiatives and strategies that actively involve residents in shaping their communities.
Act TravelWise is holding its Annual Conference & AGM on Thursday 31 January 2019 in Birmingham, with the theme 'Innovation and Change in Mobility Management: What's New and What's Next?' The call for papers has been issued, with a submission deadline of Friday 28 September 2018. The announcement also includes a call for sponsors and exhibitors.
As an example of Act TravelWise members successfully working together, Pindar Creative has created a 'make your own map' portal for Leicestershire County Council. The portal enables schools and workplaces to produce their own leaflets featuring a site-specific map.
