2WALKandCYCLE 2020

16 Sep, Dunedin

Kia ora koutou katoa.  We look forward to welcoming you to Ōtepoti Dunedin and 2WALKandCYCLE 2020.

The theme for 2WALKandCYCLE 2020 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.

2WALKandCYCLE 2020 will showcase ways to enable us to achieve this goal and will inform our journey towards transport systems for the future. It will re-examine the balance between competing demands for space and resources, and ways to rebalance our transport system to better provide for walking, cycling and public transport.

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.

​We look forward to welcoming you to Ōtepoti Dunedin in September 2020!

We have an exciting line up of speakers and many opportunities to catch up with your peers across our fabulous social functions and networking opportunities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to see the $70m Dunedin to Portobello pathway as it nears completion, the Central City Schools Cluster road safety project outcomes, and separated cycleways on SH1 between the university and central city. If you haven’t been to Dunedin in a while, you’ll be impressed!
