Oxford Leadership Programme: Global Challenges in Transport

New technologies and changing behaviours

This course develops a global perspective on the evolution, production, and consumption of contemporary mobility systems. Emerging smart technologies and behavioural intervention programmes provide the focus for understanding the role of technology in changing behaviours and energy reduction. 

The Oxford Leadership Programme on Global Transport Challenges is comprised of four individual programmes. Each programme is delivered over four days in the pleasant surroundings of Kellogg College, University of Oxford, with all accomodation and meals provided including a Welcome Lunch on arrival, and a formal networking dinner on the first night.
