CoMotion LIVE: How Britain Gets Moving Again

Back on May 20th, I hosted “How Britain Gets Moving Again: Why the UK is a Leader in New Mobility,” another episode of CoMotion LIVE. Video is above; the description is below:

The United Kingdom has long been a leader in transportation, and the current crisis is underscoring the country’s strong commitment to innovative mobility, across both the public and private sectors. From greater London’s huge new Crossrail, to open streets and progressive electric vehicle fleet mandates, the Brits are showing the world how to emerge from this crisis with better – and greener – mobility for all.

Our community joined us Wednesday, May 20, for CoMotion LIVE: How Britain Gets Moving Again: Why the UK Is a Leader in New Mobility. You’ll hear from the key leaders driving Britain’s mobility revolution: Richard Bruce, Director of Energy, Technology and Innovation at the U.K. Department for Transport, Transport for London’s head of Transport Strategy and Planning Christina Calderato, Roger Atkins, Founder of Electric Vehicles Outlook and global expert on electric mobility and Gridserve CEO Toddington Harper.

I’ve also recorded recent podcasts with Walk21’s Bronwen Thorton (below) and Greenlots COO Hernik Holland (bottom) on Britain’s mobility policies, the future of electric car charging, and more.
