Councillor Stewart Stacey talks about tomorrow’s conference
This year’s 20’s Plenty for Us national conference will be hosted at the Council House in Birmingham tomorrow (March 8).
Titled ‘20’s Plenty for Healthier Places’, the annual event will bring together speakers from across the country, including representatives from local authorities and academics, to share knowledge and best practice on how to improve the public realm, create healthy lifestyles, promote everyday exercise and reduce casualties on the roads.
Councillor Stewart Stacey, cabinet member for transport and roads at Birmingham City Council, will be giving the introduction at the conference, as well as talking about the positive work Birmingham has been doing through its ‘Slower is Safer’ 20mph strategy, including the successful Kids’ Court sessions.
Meanwhile, Mel Jones, the council’s transportation behaviour change manager, will also be speaking about this work at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) Road Safety Conference, which takes place at The Studio, in Birmingham, on Thursday, March 9.
