Spurred on by GDPR, Act TravelWise has established email groups via Freelists.org to facilitate networking among its regional networks. So far there are four groups set up. If you are an Act TravelWise member in one of four regions (Yorkshire & The Humber, Midlands, South West, South East), you can now send a 'subscribe' email to join the appropriate group.
Act TravelWise held a very successful Annual Conference with the theme 'Forward Thinking, Future Planning' on Thursday 25 January 2018 in Birmingham. Thanks to all of you who joined us - including our speakers, workshop leaders and headline sponsor SYSTRA...
In an effort to increase its activity at the regional level, Act TravelWise is seeking to expand its volunteer-based regional teams.
Do you have any members of staff that would benefit from any of the following experience?
- Supporting the coordination of a regional network
- Organising regional events (meetings – which will often include training)
- Raising their profile both regionally and nationally
- Networking with a variety of sustainable travel colleagues (across the public and private sector)
No experience required (and can be at any level – good opportunity for both junior and senior staff), they just need to be keen and willing to take on the role. This will be on a voluntary basis, so the employer will need to allow some work time to carry out the duties (i.e. attending around 2-3 meetings/events per year).
The 16th Annual Transport Practitioners' Meeting (TPM) will be held 5-6 July 2018 in Oxford. Information regarding the call for papers has been published, with a deadline for submissions of 25 January 2018.
