Going Loco: From Planes to Trains

A session at Campus Party EU

Wednesday 22nd August, 2012

11:00am to 11:00am (CET)

In the battle of the transport giants airlines consistently come out on top, outperforming railways in booking, cost and convenience. The dominance of planes is now so prevalent that going on holiday has become synonymous with taking a flight. But when it comes to green technology, trains are blazing a trail, emitting just a fraction of the carbon of a flight. The reach, speed and frequency of high-speed rail in Europe is impressive, so why are we all still flying?

Speaker: Kate Andrews is a passionate green traveller and co-founder of Loco2, whose mission is to make booking a train as easy as booking a flight.
