The recent HS2 and Extinction Rebellion protests have highlighted that conflict is ever present in transport planning and should not be ignored.
In this discussion we will be asking expert panellists to reflect on the history of protests against transport projects and policies, comment on what can be learnt by transport planners today and what to expect in the future. The panellists are past and present transport campaigners and experienced stakeholder engagement. Rather than a debate for/against any particular transport scheme, they will focus on their experience and how expectations can be managed to deliver better outcomes.

Since 2012 Ersilia's work has focused on developing theoretical and methodological approaches to issues of social and environmental justice in transport, with a specific focus on participatory planning and research methodologies. Her PhD explored the proposals and strategies by grassroots transport campaigners in Brazil and Italy with whom she worked between 2013-2016. Megan has spent the last 15 years as an activist, researcher, and consultant. She has led campaigns and created change strategies in the USA, Australia, and UK that have secured millions for cycling infrastructure, created parklets, changed transport policy, and promoted climate change. Her focus is on how to build coalitions and connect actions to real political, social, and infrastructure change. Currently, she is the Urban Studies Research Scholar at the University of Westminster and is finalising her thesis on grassroots movements and government barriers to creating cycling infrastructure.
