Welcome to the Active Travel Podcast!
We are founded by the Active Travel Academy, which was set up in September 2019, at the University of Westminster, to bring together expertise to lead research, teaching and knowledge exchange, with a focus on walking and cycling, and other ‘micromobilities’ from e-scooters to electric hand cycles; and reduction in car use.
Our expertise comes from across the University and beyond, from disciplines including transport and urban studies, architecture, sociology and politics, media studies, business studies, and health and wellbeing.
Here, with some of the leading voices in the field, we will discuss some knotty issues around air pollution, climate breakdown, inactivity, road injuries and deaths, access to transport and independent mobility in childhood and at older ages.
