Thursday, September 16 at 1pm: “What is a Just Transition for Transport” will be the topic as part of the DCC lunchtime chats series. The panel will be asked: “Reducing emissions from transport is critical to meeting our targets, but can it be done in a manner that is just? How do we make moving around the city equitable along lines of gender, race, and socioeconomic status?” Speakers are Brendan O’Brien, Executive Manager Traffic, Dublin City Council; Dr Brian Caulfield, Associate Professor and Head of Discipline in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, TCD; and Sarah Bowman, Director of Strategic Engagement for the Trinity Centre for Ageing and Intellectual Disability.
