Gateway to a sustainable future: Travel - RSA

Gateway to a sustainable future: Travel

Fellowship events



  • Behaviour change
  • Climate change
  • Environment

Join us for an event focusing on how we can create sustainable travel habits for the future.

We'll pay particular attention to community engagement opportunities around the rail network and the compelling idea of transforming train stations into a welcoming portal for their towns, cities and villages.

To help shape your individual and collective action towards sustainable travel, we’ll hear from speakers and share in the discussion, reflecting on and developing thinking around sustainable travel and community engagement.

Our speakers:

Jane Davidson FRSA, creator of the ground-breaking Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, author and environmental activist, will talk about her work in Wales and her mission to mainstream sustainability.

Rhiannon-Jane Raftery FRSA, Community Rail Development Coordinator for Wales & Borders at Community Rail Network, will discuss the opportunity for community engagement and volunteering within different networks.

Jenny Cooke FRSA, Programme Engineering Manager at Network Rail, is focused on innovation and sustainability and will discuss the shift to sustainable travel and examples of how to gain community trust and where it has worked in other countries.

There will be opportunity to ask the speakers questions and then we will go into breakout groups to discuss specific questions focusing on sustainable travel and how you can make a pledge to take your own journey forward!
