11.30am, 16 June 2016- Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
In November 2015, the Committee for Perth and partner RAC launched Get a Move On! – a year-long research project which directly responds to community concerns that the region lacks a comprehensive road, public and active transport network to meet Perth and Peel’s 21st century mobility needs. This Perth in Focus luncheon will feature a keynote address from UK Professor Jon Shaw, co-author of ‘The Transport Debate’. OurGet a Move On! Commuter Survey found that two in five commuters prefer to drive in an ideal world. Over lunch, Jon will reflect on a typology of commuters, including “motorway man”, “car complacents”, “malcontent motorists” and “aspiring environmentalists”.
