Transport Planning Camp - 7 November 2018

Transport Planning Camp 2018
9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Open Data Institute, Leeds

Transport Planning Camp is an unconference that will bring together transport planners, engineers, technologists, social activists, academics and others interested in the intersection of transport, technology, and our lives.

At an unconference, only the theme and rooms are set up by the organisers. The sessions are suggested and decided upon by attendees on the day. It provides everyone with the opportunity to shape the event, so be prepared to get involved and have some fun!

Sessions can be anything related to the theme. They can be in a variety of formats: workshops, roundtables, pecha kucha. We give you the theme, rooms, tools, and the time, you bring the inspiration.

You don’t even have to prepare anything in advance — you just make a suggestion for a session on the day. So long as it is one people want to take part in, you can do it.

To provide you with some inspiration, the theme for the unconference is the Transport Needs of Future Generations, and what this means for how we plan and deliver transport.

What will the transport needs of future generations be? Can we simply make assumptions based on the needs of the generations of today? What will this mean for social exclusion or the environment? How will new mobility services change these needs, and over what timescale? Will disruptive technologies truly be disruptive? How do we separate transport needs and desires? Do we have the right tools, and if not what tools do we need?

In light of this, what will transport planners need to work on next year, in 5 years, 10 years, or even 20 years? Do they even need to change, and if so how?

We hope that this provides you with some inspiration. If you would like to discuss your ideas with attendees, join our Slack channel.
