From his groundbreaking congestion charge, to changing the way Londoners bought their tube tickets, Ken Livingstone took on the challenge of transforming London's outdated public transport system.
At this City Talk, the former Mayor of London talks to Sydney about greener, better and more accessible transport systems and how we must change the way we get around our cities to deliver a more sustainable future.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP will outline the Sustainable Sydney 2030 plan for integrated transport for Sydney and how the City is working with the State and Federal Governments to make it happen and to create new public spaces and calm, green streets for cyclists and pedestrians. The Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government will provide the Federal perspective.
The speakers will then be joined in a panel discussion by Robert Whitehead, Director, Marketing & Newspaper Sales, The Sydney Morning Herald and Dr Garry Glazebrook, Senior Lecturer, School of the Built Environment, University of Technology, Sydney where they will discuss how a 'connected city' can be delivered to the future residents of Sydney.
City Talks are a series of free public presentations, presented by the City of Sydney and The Sydney Morning Herald.
