Walk21 Rotterdam 2019

The conference have three themes:

1 Putting Pedestrians First delivers a city for everyone 

Everybody is a pedestrian! Creating safe and attractive streets for children, women and elderly people first, deliver a public benefit for everyone.  We are looking forward to receiving examples of plans, designs and schemes that have embraced diversity, engaged communities and supported the creation of walkable cities.

2 Putting Pedestrians First delivers a healthy city

There is a changing focus on active mobility (including access to public transport) and outdoor spaces that are inviting to walk or exercise in, which can improve people’s health and well-being. ‘Clean air, dry feet and lower energy bills’ are Climate Change promises at the centre of a pact between politicians and citizens in Rotterdam. We are looking forward to examples of integrated, people focused approaches that have embraced climate change, improved health and well-being, reduced carbon or changed behaviour by putting pedestrians first.

3 Putting Pedestrians First delivers a smart city on a human scale 

The future city needs to be able to adapt to transitions with smart urban design and new mobility solutions. Measuring walking and walkability and integrating walking into traffic /transport management tools (e.g. modelling) and decision making, can assure a smart city will always be designed on a human level. We are looking forward to examples of evidence, tools, measures and systems that have delivered more walking or better walkability.
