Momentum Transport Consultancy will be one of the ‘Young Professional Supporters’ at this year’s CIHT Festival of Learning.

The festival, an online event, runs from 19-23 October and includes inspiring webinars, live workshops, masterclasses and research to gain insights from young professionals.

Derek Griffiths, associate director at Momentum, will speak at the festival fringe on the topic of ‘what if tomorrow’s big idea…is actually made up of today’s initiatives?’. Looking at the steps that engineers, designers and planners can take today to address the needs of the future city, Derek will take a closer look at a range of initiatives taking place around the world; highlight the technology and strategies which inform our client work; and the ambitions, challenges and constraints of policy and legislation which guide developments. The session will also include case studies of both masterplan and building strategies where good design, engineering and collaboration are demonstrating how effectively space can be reclaimed for the benefit of people.

Momentum’s young professionals will also contribute to the event – with short videos from Stella Ma, senior engineer; Niamh Sutherland, assistant engineer; Elena Soboleva, assistant modeller; Tobias Bryson, engineer; and Onyeka Okeke, engineer – on the importance of diversity and inclusion; the steps the government should take post-pandemic to encourage greener transportation; and the technology that will have the biggest impact on the transportation sector in the next 10 years.
