Active travel and sustainability Alone Together - A Coronavirus Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode we explore the ways we have had to adapt to coronavirus in order to stay safe, and if these changes have helped or hindered our progress to live more sustainably.

Are we still on track in the UK for a carbon neutral future? Join us, as we speak to the experts to find out just that!

Morven McIntyre speaks to Beth Gardiner, an environmental journalist and author of bestselling book ‘Choked: The Age of Air Pollution and the Fight for a Cleaner Future’, about the lessons that can be learned from the Covid-19 outbreak, to ensure we don’t take a backwards step when it comes to carbon emissions and sustainable living.

And Matt Millard speaks with transport expert Tom Millard, a senior consultant and lead for Economics at PJA - an integrated transport, engineering and placemaking consultancy based in Birmingham. Tom explains how the pandemic has impacted travel demand, what the risks are if we all jump into our cars to avoid public transport and what positive things are now being done to help try and reduce the environmental impact of our new, more socially distanced journeys.

Alone Together is a Laudable production from the newsrooms of the Manchester Evening News, the Edinburgh Evening News, and Birmingham Live. It is presented by Morven McIntyre, Matt Millard and Dan McLaughlin, and it is produced and edited by Matt Millard.
