Sustain Wales Summit 2019

SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT AND MOBILITY
PUTTING THE CITIZEN AT THE HEART OF URBAN TRAVEL

Our fourth annual Sustain Wales Summit took place on 09 May 2019 at the Principality stadium with a focus on sustainable transport and mobility: putting the citizen at the heart of urban travel.

The Sustain Wales Summit has always striven to showcase cutting-edge solutions to some of our most pressing sustainability challenges. This year’s theme was urban mobility; a complex and multi-dimensional issue that impacts deeply on our quality of life. From individual needs, to a community’s access to jobs, to city pollution – none of these can be addressed without looking at transport and the ways in which people move to and within urban areas.

The 2019 Summit brought together industry pioneers with decision-makers and community representatives to demonstrate how a transport system fit for the 21st century can be implemented using existing technology, evidence, insights and appetite from multiple players.
