Regional Transport Conference

OBJECTIVES

The Welsh Government has recently published their Transport Strategy Consultation, which closes on 25th January 2021. In partnership with Swansea Environmental Forum and Natural Resources Wales, we want to host a major regional conversation about the future of transport in South West Wales - not with transport campaigners and politicians but with real people and businesses who care about the future of the region.

UPDATE

Lee Waters MS has confirmed that he will speak at the event, and the dates are confirmed for 9th and 10th February. Spread over two consecutive mornings, the conference will provide an open forum to explore key challenges and opportunities - and design new solutions - making sure we are all listening to each other and moving forward together, towards a greener, cleaner, healthier, more inclusive and better connected transport system for our region.

NEXT STEPS

Our priority is to engage with more partners, including the PSBs, major employers and regional authorities, to ensure we are all working together. If you represent an organisation, business or community group involved in travel and transport in Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot and/or Swansea, please get in touch with zoe@4theregion.com about opportunities to showcase your work at this event.

MOVING FORWARD   |   TEITHIO YMLAEN

We need greener, cleaner, healthier and better connected travel and transport for South West Wales, for a transport system that meets the needs of businesses, serves communities, and improves well-being across the region.

Join us to help shape the future of transport in Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea: What should the government be investing in, what could the local authorities be doing, and how can people, communities and businesses be part of the solution?

We want to hear from YOU.

With an opening address from Lee Waters MS, Deputy Minister for Economy & Transport, Welsh Government

Tues 9th February 2021   |   10am-1pm
Wed 10th February 2021  |   10am-1pm

People, community groups, employers, businesses, professionals, campaigners, developers, decision-makers and policy-makers will come together for a major online conference in February 2021, to discuss regional transport and co-create a shared set of priorities and actions for South West Wales.

It’s time to take a fresh look at how we can better connect our region whilst reducing carbon emissions and improving health and well-being. This is an inclusive online event for car users, transport users, cyclists and pedestrians, even if you’ve never been involved in conversations about transport before. If you care about South West Wales and want to see our region flourish in the years to come, please get involved!

Spread over two consecutive mornings, the conference will provide an open forum to explore key challenges and opportunities – and design new solutions – making sure we are all listening to each other and moving forward together, towards a greener, cleaner, healthier, more inclusive and better connected transport system for our region.
