Sustainable Transport

24 May 2011 the Society of Sustainability & Environmental Engineering (SSEE) will be hosting a Technical Meeting at Engineering House, featuring Dr Andrew Simpson one of Australia’s foremost independent experts in renewable electric vehicle (EV) technology, policy and strategy.

Main auditorium (Hawken Room) on Level two of 447 Upper Edward Street, Brisbane  6pm 24 May 2011


There will be a panel discussion on the wider issues of sustainability & transport including representatives & advocates of mass transport, active transport & new technologies versus the incumbent modes/technologies.


The Panel includes:

Genevieve Graves - the Manager, Sustainable Transport at RACQ. A policy analyst for the past twenty years she has experience in transport, social capital and human services. Her role at RACQ is focused on greener motoring including electric vehicles and eco-driving. She is a keen environmentalist and the Treasurer of Save Our Waterways Now, a local environment group seeking to restore the habitat of the Enoggera Creek catchment.


Robert Dow - administrator & founder of RAIL Back On Track: A web based community group that advocates for sustainable transport solutions mainly rail and advocates strongly for rail commuters, and at times other public transport commuters eg. bus & ferry, & is also concerned with the interface of other modes of public transport with rail.


Robert is by profession a medical scientist and was an academic at the Queensland University of Technology before he retired in 2010. He is a Life member and Fellow of the Australian Institute of Medical Scientists which reflects his long involvement in the Medical Science profession. Robert served in the Australian Army for around 23 years in the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps and saw operational service in South Vietnam and Irian Jaya, and retired as a Captain. A life long interest in railways and frustration with failing transport services lead Robert to form RAIL Back On Track to engage with the media and advocate for public transport improvements.


Thea (Tae) Baker – is an Inner City resident of Brisbane who passionately took up the cause of CityCycle, Brisbane City Council’s flagship and flagging active transport project, from its release in October 2010. After living in the Inner City, including Spring Hill, New Farm and Fortitude Valley, Tae has been an avid user of Public Transport since first relocating to Brisbane from the car dominated Gold Coast almost ten years ago. Now, instead of walking or taking the bus, Tae walks and rides to work using the CityCycle scheme, as well as incorporating it into her social life as her primary means of transport for the Inner City. Tae is the National Recruitment Coordinator for a major charity based in Brisbane and often finds herself in our other capital cities and rural towns – often with her helmet in tow. Not your typical lycra wearing cyclist, Tae will be able to discuss the successes and challenges of CityCycle for Brisbane and its users from her own anecdotal experiences.
