Transport Planning Day 2020 


The Transport Planning Day Campaign runs throughout the year in the lead up to Transport Planning Day in November

Transport Planning Day 2020 will take place on the 16thof November and the 2020 campaign will run completely online, to ensure everyone’s health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign was launched in 2018 to raise the profile of transport planning and its role in changing people's lives. It aims to engage communities on the role of transport planners and to celebrate the achievements of transport planning. 

The Transport Planning Day campaign takes place through a series of activities around the UK to put the profession in the spotlight. This includes a reception with MPs in the House of Parliament and Transport Planning Day, which is held in November each year.

A Climate Change theme for Transport Planning Day 2020

The Transport Planning Society launched the 2020 Transport Planning Day Campaign focusing on the role of transport planners in tackling climate change and creating a sustainable, healthy future.

The transport sector is now the UK's leading source of greenhouse gas emissions. This puts transport planners at the forefront of addressing the climate crisis. 

We have decided on climate change as this year’s theme as there are fantastic transport planning initiatives around the UK that are focusing on how to make transport and travel more sustainable.

We want to continue to highlight evolving good practice, by sharing positive news within the industry and the communities that benefit from the projects our members deliver.

We also want to look to the future to see how we can improve transport even further, which is why we have launched a nationwide poster competition in partnership with Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking. Find out how to take part in the transport planners of the future poster competition.

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, our campaign will run completely online, including the Parliamentary Reception in October and Transport Planning Day itself on 16 November 2020.  This also means there will be no People’s Award this year.

The campaign has been informed by research with our stakeholder members and community groups.
