Wirral’s transport infrastructure is focused on private vehicles and doesn’t offer easily accessible alternatives for those who want, or need, to use other transport options. In the face of climate change, we need to see a huge shift in our modes of travel, which will also improve physical and mental health, enhance quality of life and the local economy, as well as making space for nature. But what does this mean on the ground for the Wirral?
Following the success of their first event in December 2020, Wirral Climate Action Group have been organising a second event alongside Rethink Now CIC, Wirral Environmental Network, and Hope for the Future, which will dive deeper into local transport issues.
The event will bring together a range of experts, key stakeholders, local perspectives and politicians for an engaging and forward-looking discussion about the future of sustainable travel and transport on the Wirral (with lessons that apply elsewhere in the UK as well!). They’ll be joined by the local MPs for the Wirral including Angela Eagle, Mick Whitley and Margaret Greenwood.
If you’re concerned about transport or you just want to find out more, they’d love to have you join us. They want to see as many people as possible at this event, to show that there is a mandate for action to shift to sustainable, accessible modes of transport on the Wirral.
This event is free to attend and open to all.
