Traffic issues have proved highly contentious in recent times. To what extent is the media responsible for fanning the flames? Former BBC journalist Roger Harrabin and international climate communications expert (and Oxfordian!) Jamie Clarke will talk on the role of the media in shaping public opinion on car use, active travel and climate measures. How do we break the cycle of 'outrage-clicks', take the toxicity out of the debate and hold genuine conversations, while still reflecting the wide range of views?
