The TSU participated in the Test Drive the Future event, organised by Oxford City Council to promote awareness and knowledge of electric vehicles on Sunday 19 June at Magdalen College School in Oxford. Visitors were offered the possibility to try out different electric vehicles and were provided information on the use and environmental benefits of such vehicles.
The TSU team raised awareness about the adverse environmental consequences of widespread use of conventional cars in cities through a range of family friendly activities, including a survey asking how children travel to school and visualisations of air pollution levels and the amount of road space different modes of transport take up. They also promoted their Global Challenges in Transport Leadership Programme. The event was well attended and great fun.
