Living Streets Aotearoa is hosting its fourth Walking Summit this year in Christchurch.
Where: Christchurch and online
When: 24-25 July 2023
Registration: register for the Living Streets Aotearoa Walking Summit
The Summit brings together people from across Aotearoa to discuss how we can make the places we live more walkable, liveable, and sustainable. As well as exploring ways to reduce emissions, increase resilience in the face of climate change and create more inclusive streets, the Summit will celebrate those who are removing barriers to walking in their communities.
There will be an impressive programme of speakers, walkshops, and discussions where you can hear from a series of experts, leaders, and change-makers who will share their insights on how to create walking-friendly spaces.
Attendees will hear:
- about the development of New Zealand’s first National Walking Plan
- from speakers, including Professor Simon Kingham and Dr Shanthi Ameratunga, who will share their research on creating inclusive streets
- from Waka Kotahi and local government representatives about their insights on what's coming up in the policy space
- about the mahi undertaken by Living Streets Aotearoa Golden Foot winner Colin Meurk and Walking Festival director Jacqui Miller.
