      London Walking and Cycling Conference

      New for 2019. Hackney Council partner with the City of London Corporation to discuss both cycling and walking at this year's conference. After seven successful years of the Hackney Cycling Conference, we are excited to announce that the London Borough of Hackney will be partnering with the City of London Corporation to host the London Walking and Cycling Conference, in association with Steer. The City has the highest walking rates of any local authority in the country and Hackney is London's number one borough for cycling. This partnership combines our expertise and recognises the importance of active travel to both residents and businesses. Past conferences have attracted a wide range of industry professionals, campaigners and elected members and are a great opportunity to be heard, influence policy and gain exposure for your ideas. Previous speakers have included London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman, academic and author of ‘Bad Science’ Dr Ben Goldacre and Andreas Rohl, who was Head of Cycling for Copenhagen for 7 years. Co-hosted by Hackney Council, the City of London, this year’s conference is set to host the widest range of sustainable transport experts yet. It will explore how to improve the experience of walking and cycling and enable more people to choose these healthy and sustainable modes of travel. It will also consider the wider social, environmental and economic benefits of investing in walking, cycling and Healthy Streets. Details of 2018’s event can be found here.     Speakers Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London Judith Bokhove, Vice Mayor for Mobility Rotterdam Cllr Caro Wild, Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning & Transport, Cardiff Council Philip Glanville, Mayor of Hackney Cllr Feryal Demirci, Deputy Mayor of Hackney and Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care, Transport and Parks Alastair Moss, Chair of the Planning and Transportation Committee, City of London Will Norman, London Walking and Cycling Commissioner Silviya Barrett, Research Manager, Centre for London Averil Pittaway, Department of the Build Environment, City of London Gillian Howard, Principal Project Manager, City of London Alex Longdon, Principal City Planner, TfL Alice Saunders, Strategic Analyst, TfL Andy Rogers, Planning and Performance Manager, TfL Angela van der Kloof, Sustainable Mobility Consultant, Mobycon Aurora Echavarria Canales, Steer Clare Wadd, Chair, Inner London Ramblers Dan Johnson, Director of Placemaking, New West End Company Jeremy Leach, London Campaign Co-ordinator, 20s Plenty for Us Katy Miller, Founder, Ride Clean Kevin O'Sullivan, Principal Solicitor, Cycle Legal Lucy Saunders, Director, Healthy Streets Matthew Clark, Associate, Steer Melissa Bruntlett, Modacity Mike Grahn, Pedestrian Crossing Lead, Living Streets Neil Andrews, Campaigns and Policy Manager, Wheels for Wellbeing Neil Webster, Director, Cyclo Consulting Nick Butler, Modeshift Dr Robert Davis, Chair, Road Danger Reduction Forum Richard Eason, Healthy Streets Programme Director, Enfield Council Sarah Clements, Director, Element Energy Shelly Bontje, Mobility Advisor, Mobycon Tom Bailey, Director, Streets Systems Prof Tom Cherrett, Professor of Logistics and Transport Management, University of Southampton   More to be announced soon!
