This virtual roundtable will bring together businesses and organisations that have embraced and encouraged active travel to workplaces, such as cycling and walking. This is an opportunity to feed into policy development and identify the barriers and opportunities employers are grappling with to incentivise active travel and to ensure employees return to work safely as lockdown eases.

About the webinar
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about best practice and share the challenges in promoting active travel and commuting to workplaces post lockdown. They will also be able to discuss how this can be supported by ambitious government policies. Policies to encourage the shift to more sustainable modes of transport as employees return to work.

Audience
Attendance at this event is by invite only. If you think you should have received an invitation and have not, please contact Annette Ettarh, Events Manager at BITC. The event is designed to benefit individuals at c-suite level.

The future of commuting and active travel
Cycling and walking have well documented health benefits for society, individuals, the economy and the environment. As we ease out of lockdown it is vital that we continue to promote these positive behaviours as people return to workplaces. Businesses have a major role to play in mobilising and incentivising active travel within their workplace. In May 2020 the Department for Transport announced a £2.1bn package to improve infrastructure in order incentivise active travel such as cycling and walking. Bringing together insights from initiatives established prior to the pandemic, as well as how businesses have adapted to the shifting working patterns over the last year, this roundtable will explore the future of active travel to the workplace and the unique opportunity we have to embed these positive behaviours adopted during the pandemic.
