Brum: the green future of an automotive heartland – Common Wealth
The West Midlands is the historic home of the UK’s automotive industry. It can be the future too. An ambitious green industrial strategy – with workers and communities at its heart – can ensure the region leads the UK’s transport revolution: producing the electric vehicles of the future, centring mobility justice, and securing the green industries and trade union jobs of the future.
Drawing on workshops with local trade unionists, climate activists, policy officers, and researchers, the Architectural Association, the AA Groundlab, and Common Wealth have created a vision of the Birmingham’s auto industry and transport systems that is electric, public-oriented, and thriving.
