February Virtual Cafe will be dedicated to the Dingle Peninsula, located in the south-west of Ireland, which has been designated as the decarbonisation zone for Co Kerry. Transport (at 54% of the total) is the greatest single user of energy on the Peninsula and a national Sustainable Mobility Pathfinder project is underway to develop reliable, realistic, easy-to-access and affordable alternative modes of travel that will reduce high levels of private car dependency currently inherent in rural areas.
Recognising that standalone measures will not be sufficient to enable decisions to car shed, the project is working to unlock solutions through the integration of measures including effective, sustained and meaningful community-engagement, enablement of modal shift, enhanced sustainable public transport and infrastructure, and analysis and evaluation of effectiveness of measures for rural areas.

June Virtual Cafe will outline a research case study by the James Hutton Institute in Argyll and the islands, which is exploring the role of transport in relation to rural and island repopulation. We will outline the project and would love to hear about transport-related issues or initiatives in the area and their impact on the everyday lives of residents.
