Past event
The first ever 2 Walk and Cycle Conference will be held in Hastings at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House in the Opera House Theatre.

The focus of this conference is on everyday walking and cycling for transport, recreation and tourism. It encompasses all aspects of trips made by these “active modes” (including promotion, infrastructure, safety, policy and training) and their integration with each other, other travel options, and our lifestyles in general.

The conference theme is Creating Smarter Connections, and we will be particularly addressing the following topics:

  • Benefits (economic, health, etc) of providing for and encouraging walking and cycling
  • Integration of walking and cycling with public transport and other travel modes
  • Progress and success stories from Model Walking/Cycling Communities and similar initiatives
  • Commonalities/Conflicts between walking and cycling for planning/policy/design purposes
  • Initiatives that address safety of walking/cycling
  • Measures to encourage and enhance school walking and cycling travel
  • Signage and directional/way-finding guidance for walking/cycling routes and areas

The full programme can be found here.

Registration can be found here.
