At the beginning of October TSU researchers Brendan Doody and Tim Schwanen ran an interactive and interdisciplinary workshop to examine how a transition towards widespread car sharing can be realised in London.

The workshop, held at the Royal Geographical Society, was organised as part of the TEMPEST project and followed the principles of the 'Transition Management' approach. It brought together 14 participants from industry, research, NGOs and policy to reflect on a number of different visions for a transition to car sharing and to help identify possible pathways and barriers to the realisation of these visions.

All participants made valuable contributions and engaged with these topics in creative, reflective and thoughtful ways. The insights generated from the workshop will be drawn together into a short briefing document for policy makers and other stakeholders in the mobility sector in London.
