Public Transport Advocacy Forum

SLIMs.jpg

This forum, organised by Students Linking Melbourne Sustainably (SLiMs), is aimed at supporting people advocating for public transport - specifically, dealing with the tricky questions that pop up and handling popular misconceptions.

Speakers at the forum will be Dr John Stone (University of Melbourne) and Dr Graham Currie (Monash University). Anthony Aisenburg from CrowdSpot will also demonstrate his company's work with the Public Transport Not Traffic campaign (that's us!)and how you can get involved.

Ever tried to make the point that public transport is good for the environment but been unable to explain exactly why? Ever tried to convince somebody that we can't fund public transport AND huge road projects like the East-West toll road, but didn't have enough evidence?

This forum will cover these tricky areas and give you the evidence and international examples you need to confidently convince others that a greater focus in public transport is the way to go.

Please note entry is by donation payable on the day - suggested donation $5 - and all donations support the Royal Park Festival, organised by SLiMS.
