The climate crisis challenges us to change ways in which we do a lot of everyday things. One of the most important of these is the ways we daily move around town.
This lecture explores ways in which cycling can contribute to more sustainable patterns of movement and what holds us back from making changes. Everything from technology to individual attitudes connects in the simple everyday journeys we make: to do the shopping, to socialise, to get ourselves and our families to work and school.
Peter Cox’s work on cycling studies connects to a global network of scholars and activists who are working together with politicians and planners to change patterns of travel across the world, and he brings this international perspective to the realities of local travel.
Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.
They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.
