Transport and the Carbon Challenge

At the invitation of The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, the annual CNU Transportation Summit 2007 was hosted in London on November 12th – 14th. By bringing together key opinion formers from both sides of the Atlantic as well as the Middle East and Australia, the summit set out to promote a cross fertilization of the best advances in global transportation reform for cities. We explored questions such as:

    What are transport planners responsibilities to the carbon challenge, and how can emissions reduction be achieved?
    How can we use transportation as an opportunity to create and design urban places we want?

A wealth of experience was shared by new urbanist experts in the field. Transport for London led tours to beacon projects, such as Kensington High Street and Trafalgar Square. On the third day of the summit, a number of participants went on the optional tour of Poundbury, the Prince of Wales’ exemplary urban extension of Dorchester, masterplanned by Leon Krier and built out under the guidance of the Duchy of Cornwall.
