A number of delegates from all over Scotland will arrive in Dumfries to discuss the town's green transport options. £5 million has been spent trying to get the towns folk out of their cars and using sustainable transport.
Recently the council were criticised for their bicycle scheme which cost £155,000 but had an uptake of less than 20 people a week.
The event, which has been organised by Dumfries and Galloway council, will centre on three key questions:
- Is the green message still effective?
- Should we promote more selfish benefits of using sustainable transport?
- Is the credit crunch making sustainability more people?
