Overview

Auckland hosted the third 2WALKandCYCLE conference, combining the two, traditionally seperate interest groups.The 2WALKandCYCLE 2016 Conference was held at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel, July 6-8, 2016.


Theme

The theme of the conference is "moving towards healthy communities".

The conference’s focus is on active, human-powered transport to achieve healthier, smarter and more liveable cities. This can be achieved through balancing our extensive car travel network with better provision for walking and cycling.

The 2WALKandCYCLE Conference will showcase strategies to enable us to achieve these goals. International and national researchers, practitioners, and health professionals will speak 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 will be 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. 

The conference committee appreciates the significant support given by Auckland Council and Auckland Transport.
