Planning for Sustainable Land Use & Transport stream announced for this years ETC 2017
The Planning for Sustainable Land Use & Transport (PSLUT) stream provides a home for issues at the leading edge of policy development at the interface between land use and transport planning.
Its focus is on sustainable solutions to land use and transport problems and how to measure and evaluate their effectiveness and impacts.
Join us for this year's programme at ETC 2017 which includes:
Equity issues (e.g. inclusion and exclusion; solutions for non-car users)
Transport in cities (e.g. first and last mile; SUMP’s; assessment studies; emissions in cities)
Mode shift and travel behaviour (e.g. trends and drivers; life events; role of energy efficient modes; effects of road closure; shift to cycling and the role of the e-bike)
Land use and transport interaction (e.g. trends; role of BRT; tradeoffs between land use and transport characteristics)
Transit oriented development (e.g. assessment of locations and options; planning issues; accessibility challenges)
New technologies and autonomous driving (e.g. role of smartphones, changes in parking; social, behavioural and urban impacts)
Dealing with complex issues (transition, uncertainty and wicked problems) in research and planning uncertainty (a dialogue session in which speakers invite the audience to reflect on these issues together)

Travel and accommodation
As Barcelona is a prime location for business and pleasure, we recommend that ETC attendees book their travel and accommodation as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If you need help sourcing accommodation, we have a limited number of rooms reserved in several venues in and around the city and will be able to forward these details to you.
