Older Wiser Drivers is a pilot research project led by Dr Julie Clark (University of the West of Scotland), Professor Iain Docherty (University of Stirling), and Dr Sarah Swift (University of the West of Scotland).

Our study, funded by the DecarboN8 network, aims to identify the most appropriate and effective ways of supporting people to reduce car use and ownership, encouraging more sustainable transport use. We are drawing on the lived experiences of older drivers and ex-drivers, and working with sustainability organisations across the North of England, to develop a fair, socially inclusive approach to reducing carbon emissions generated from driving.
