With EV Drives from 6 PM
Flip the Fleet is a “citizen science” coalition of EV owners that submit data to a communal database each month to measure the constraints and benefits of electric vehicles in New Zealand conditions (www.flipthefleet.org). This talk first highlights opportunities for EVs to revolutionise our transport and economy. It then examines the strengths and weaknesses of citizen science as a research, education and advocacy tool to encourage sustainability transitions and innovation.
Format: (tickets available on the door)
EV test drives from 6 pm at the venue (large car park)
The doors open at 6:30 pm to serve tea, coffee and light refreshments.
The presentation runs from 7:00 - 8:15ish
