People are increasingly buying online –  accelerated by the growth of Covid-19. This year IMRG Capgemini Online Retail Results for January 2021 revealed that UK online sales grew 74% year-on-year in January 2021.

But what does this mean for our local areas, and how can couriers, businesses, councils, local families and activists work together to ensure local deliveries are safe, clean and healthy?

In this talk, Martin Howitt from The Data Place will explain how they are collecting environmental data from eCargo bikes to explore how data collaboration can help solve these challenges.
