How can transport become a universal basic service that all can access, a service that takes us beyond driving and flying, and a service which is so rooted in communities so that it can never be privatised? After a short introduction by Cat Hobbs, director of We Own It, which campaigns for public ownership of our public services, we will learn and discuss from lots of perspectives.
Come to this session to learn, listen, offer your ideas, and craft those ideas into policy proposals.
This is part of our 'Manifesto for the Movement' project. Over the course of the four days, hundreds of festival attendees in collaboration with policy experts will build a ‘Manifesto For The Movement’ - a radical document that will be presented to MPs at the end of the festival. Get involved in any TWT Policy Lab to be a part of this.
Andy McDonald is the MP for Middlesborough and Shadow Transport Secretary
