Dunedin, New Zealand

Event details

16 - 19 Mar, 2021

​​From the innovative separated cycleways on major arterials to the proposed urban realm enhancements along George Street, Dunedin has great new examples of redesigning our public space to encourage walking and cycling. The rapid implementation of road safety improvements for the cluster of five central city schools is another must-see.

Dunedin is a compact city, making for an easy stroll between conference venues, accommodation, museums, galleries, and theatres. Dunedin is home to the University of Otago, New Zealand’s oldest university, an innovative polytechnic and dynamic inventive technology sectors. The thriving student population generates a vibrant youth culture, and the City is renowned for its music, fashion, food and art. 

The theme for 2WALKandCYCLE 2021 is ‘walking and cycling: everybody’s business’. Investment in walking and cycling is often considered to be a ‘nice to have’ if there is money left over after providing for cars. Likewise, the convenience of driving often takes precedence over active modes when hard decisions have to be made during transportation system management.  It emphasises that the many forms of walking and cycling have a central role to play in meeting society’s health, wellbeing and climate change targets.

The conference will be attended by engineers, urban planners, architects, academics, politicians, advocates and others from a broad range of organisations such as local and central government, consultancies, universities, businesses and departments focusing on health along with advocacy groups.

São Paulo, State of São Paulo, Brazil

Known as “The cry of Ipiranga”, the exclamation, by Dom Pedro I, was the moment Brazil became independent, in 1822, 200 years ago. To mark the historic moment, going back and forward in time, I'll take a circular walk through São Paulo.
