Peter Newman – a global perspective on transport and cities of the future

A man of hope rather than despair, Peter Newman was instrumental in saving Perth’s rail system. His influence was such that Perth’s rail system grew when no other city in the world was expanding heavy rail. Inspired by studying in Deflt, Peter Newman asked himself why do we not all live in such energy efficient cities. The perspective gained from analysis of data collected from hundreds of cities around the world about their transport patterns and energy use has been foundational in creating many revitalised city designs round the world. Peter Newman is now a IPCC Report lead author, and will be speaking at Lighter Footprint’s Oct 31st forum, Living in the Clean Economy, at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
