Citizen workshops (Phase 2i)

The first part of Phase 2 consisted of a series of citizen workshops in January and February 2017, one for each of the five groups identified:

  • walking/running;
  • bicycle;
  • public transport,;
  • a combination of modes in one journey (e.g. Park & Ride); or,
  • motor vehicle (referred to as car).

The workshops were 3 hours long and focused on specific influencing factors identified from the survey analysis (Phase 1) that affect the reasons and choices underpinning why people choose the mode of travel that they do for their commute, as well as why and how they might want to change, or recently done so.

The aim of the workshops was to allow the participants to discuss the specific issues and identify ideas and ways forward that would enable them to reduce the number of times they use a car in a typical 4 week period. The results have been used to develop a range of interventions, one of which has been selected and developed, along with the other Partners in the project, to be trialled with larger groups during June and July 2017.

People are currently being recruited for this intervention trial so, if you were someone who completed the Phase 1 on-line survey last year, look out for more information being emailed to you.
