The project will be giving four presentations covering different aspects of the project as well as running a workshop covering the overall ‘Fleximobility’ concept that we have generated from the project. The presentations will be: Responses and adaptability to disrupted travel patterns – a questionnaire study (Jillian Anable, Thomas Budd and Tim Chatterton) Spatial, temporal and social factors in everyday mobility and modal choice – 3 years of ethnographic studies (Noel Cass and James Faulconbridge) Disruption as it happens – a selection of responsive case studies (Greg Marsden and Jeremy Shires) Defining and delivering sustainable transport: who has the power to change the way we travel

Annual Conference of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute for British Geographers, 26th – 29th August 2014, London – Call for Papers

Annual Conference of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute for British Geographers, 26th – 29th August 2014, London Call for Papers Intergenerational mobilities: experiencing age in mobile urban spaces Sponsored by the Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group (GCYFRG) Session Conveners Lesley Murray, University of Brighton ( L.Murray@brighton.ac.uk ) Sue Robertson, University of Brighton ( S.Robertson@brighton.ac.uk ) Abstract With the proportion of people living in the world’s cities set to rise to 70% by 2050 it is becoming increasingly important to understand the ways in which mobile urban spaces are co-produced by people of different ages (Cresswell 2006, Urry 2007). Drawing from work on geographies of the lifecourse (Bailey 2009; Hockey 2009; Hopkins and Pain 2007) this session is concerned with the ways in which age, as a relational concept, intersects with mobile urban space. We are interested in the ways in which age is played out in urban spaces according to constructions of lifecourse and generation looking not only at the margins, in relation to older age and childhood, but at the dynamic interdependencies between all ages.

Things move people around

So this is interesting for Internet of Things experiences. Objects telling us to where they want to go… Part of the Tourism Work Package led by Janet Dickinson and Julia Hibbert from Bournemouth University has involved working with visitors to the  Tom’s Field campsite in Purbeck. The visitors have been using the Sixth Sense Tourism app for iPhones that let’s users share information about where they are, what they can share: car journeys or collect things from nearby shops for them

Sustainable Flood Memories

On Thursday 3rd October, The ESRC project “Sustainable Flood Memories” led by Professor Lindsey McEwan at the University of the West of England will be holding a conference at the Gloucester Guildhall on  Sustainable flood memories and the development of community resilience to future flood risk. The conference will explore the nature of flood memory and its relationship to the development of local knowledge for increased community resilience to local flood risk.  The event represents part of the 30 month ESRC Sustainable Flood Memories project, which has worked with communities and organisations in the lower Severn valley in the aftermath of the July 2007 floods.  In particular, the event will reflect on: •        how communities remember and archive flood experiences •        how these memories are materialised, assimilated, embedded and protected in contemporary communities and culture •        how sustainable flood memories might have a particular role in developing community resilience to residual risk •        how communities themselves and organisations charged with flood resilience planning can engage with, and support, development of sustainable flood memories More details about the conference and project can be found here: http://insight.glos.ac.uk/researchmainpage/centres/csfc/sfm/Pages/default.aspx http://floodmemories.wordpress.com/
