On 23 July 2019, Exeter City Council declared a climate emergency and committed to making Exeter carbon neutral by 2030. “This ambition”, says programme lead and Exeter City Futures’ Managing Director, Dr Liz O’Driscoll, “is aligned to the vision for the City and will make a vital contribution to our planet and all its people. Exeter has an opportunity to show leadership among cities through decisive implementation of policies, innovations and investment that will shape the way we live, and our environmental impact, for decades to come. We will need to harness new technologies that improve the way we manage our resources and how we move around our cities. Inevitably, choices will need to be made that affect us all”. Liz’s keynote presentation at TRANSPORT Smart Class, South West England 2019 outlined Exeter’s approach to developing a shared roadmap for the City and explained why this will give Exeter the best chance of achieving a just transition to a carbon neutral future.
