Thank you to those that attended the 2WALKandCYCLE Conference 2016 in Auckland, the premier national conference addressing walking and cycling issues. Held at Rendezvous Grand Hotel from 6-8 July 2016.
The conference’s focus was on active, human-powered transport to achieve healthier, smarter and more liveable cities. We discussed achieving this through balancing our extensive car travel network with better provision for walking and cycling.
The 2WALKandCYCLE Conference showcased strategies to enable us to achieve these goals. International and national researchers, practitioners, and health professionals spoke about the methods, policies and programmes that have been used to promote walking and cycling, and that can inform our journey towards better transport systems in the future.
The conference was attended by engineers, town planners, architects, academics, politicians, advocates and others from a broad range of organisations such as local and central government, consultancies, health boards, universities, and advocacy groups.
