Mexico City, Mexico
Past event
Walk21 in a unique partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Transport Mexico is very pleased to invite you to join us for this landmark event in Mexico City.

This 4-day international conference will, for the first time in Latin America, discuss how an inclusive, trusted and happy community that chooses to walk and move around the city, may be inspired through vision, leadership and partnership. Whether you are an official, a campaigner or a practitioner, you are warmly invited to share your experience of how to provide successful, walkable, connected and public transport-oriented places for active communities, and especially for cities in development that have millions of people relying on us to get the future right.

The four main themes (including for proposals) are:
  • Inclusion: the city of the future offers an accessible, integrated and inclusive mobility
  • Trust: the city of the future can be enjoyed securely, with confidence and certainty
  • Well-being: the city of the future allows its people to breathe, move freely, safely and be healthy
  • Community: the city of the future has active citizens and is supported by a responsible government

More information on the Call for Papers can be found in English and Spanish.
