2017 theme: Low tech movement in a high tech world
The simple acts of walking and cycling have the potential to transform the places we live, our economies and how we engage with our environment. The Australian Walking and Cycling conference explores the potential for walking and cycling to not only provide for transport and recreation but solutions to challenges of liveability, health, community building, economic development and sustainability. As one of Australia’s longest running, best regarded and most affordable active travel conferences, we bring together practitioners and researchers from Australia and across the world to share their work and engage with conference participants.
The conference welcomes town and country planners, transport planners, policy makers, population health experts, mobility technicians, health promotion professionals and futurists, activists, advocates and change agents. People who want to build better cities and towns and who want to share their vision and their evidence. People from Australia, New Zealand or from across the globe.
