New Zealand Walking Summit – 25 – 25 June 2021


We are pleased to let you know that the
programme
for our third New Zealand Walking Summit to be
held in Wellington on 24 – 25 June 2021 is
online.

The Summit will focus on some of the key
issues for 2021 and beyond, including the Climate Change
Commissions wero (challenge) to increase walk mode share by
25% by 2050, and the big shake up happening in our planning
laws which we expect will lead to more pedestrian-centric
development.

We’ll hear directly from pedestrians,
who will share their experiences of being young and old, out
at night or in the day, on the bus or train and off again.
There will be walkshops on getting to school, accessing
everyday places, and the importance of green space and
culture. And if that’s not enough we will have panel
discussions to poke the issues and come up with some
solutions for the path to achieve our pedestrian
dreams.

Join the Minister for Transport Hon Michael
Wood, Climate Commissioner James Renwick, Wellington Deputy
Mayor and walking portfolio leader Sarah Free, and a host of
others to lace up your shoes and inspire us for a better
future.

Registrations are limited as a Covid-19
precaution and we’ve kept costs to a minimum because we
want you to take part in this important kōrero. Register here

Thanks
to our sponsors for making this possible – Becky Bliss,
Izzy Wilson and Antistatic, Community Comms Collective,
Greater Wellington Regional Council, Wellington City Council
and Waka
Kotahi.
