Paul Steely White at AITPM 2018 Perth: Alternative Transportation Lessons from New York

Paul Steely White is the executive director of Transport Alternatives a non-profit organisation in New York City whose mission is to reclaim the streets of New York from cars, by promoting safer, quieter, more healthy alternatives such as walking, cycling and using public transport.

He came to Australia as a key note speaker for the 2018 AITPM National Conference in Perth.

He is clearly not afraid to stand up and state his case which he does with passion but not with vindictiveness.

He has had to push against some entrenched old fashioned thinking

After the conference David Brown  had a chat with him about using all your available armoury, understanding where your opponents are coming from and pursuing new ways of engaging the community.
