Operationalising 'sustainable mobility': the case of transport policy for older citizens in rural areas

Dimensions beyond nationalism must be considered in determining responsibility for rising climate change emissions. This article seeks to exemplify this process of operationalizing sustainable mobility by considering the attributes of aging and rurality. The sustainable mobility opportunities of older citizens living in rural areas of the UK are considered. Findings indicate that these older citizens are a highly diverse group. Man of them are not only effectively included in society, but play a significant role as consumers with high-carbon lifestyles. In order to achieve more sustainable mobility, the access needs of social groups need to be better understood and addressed, including the wide range of groups to which older citizens belong.
