YTP, with sponsorship from Siemens, hosted an online panel discussion on the transport industry’s transition to a more sustainable future. Our panelists, Olivia Laskowski, Warner Priest and Jaad Clifford-Bolt with Natasha Santha as the moderator, discussed a variety of different topics including electric vehicle manufacturing and management, hydrogen powered vehicles, and developments in sustainable transport infrastructure.
Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 restrictions at the time of planning, we decided to separate the panel discussion portion of the evening from the networking/drinks portion by holding the panel discussion online and the networking in person at a later date. This thinking may have just jinxed us as sure enough we went into lockdown later that week when we were planning to host the networking portion of the event. We still do intend to host the networking drinks for the Road to Zero Emissions, but as we have learnt with all our events this year, it can be difficult to plan anything during a pandemic.
Thank you to all our members who attended online, and we hope to see many of our Melbourne members in person when we are finally able to host an in-person event again. A special thank you our panellists who gave up their Wednesday evening to be a part of the discussion and brought their unique perspectives on the future of the transport industry.
