Walk21 2019 in Rotterdam
Putting Pedestrians First:
Smart, Healthy and For Everyone
The City of Rotterdam is delighted to be hosting
the 20th International Conference
on Walking and Liveable Communities
in partnership with Walk21 from October 7th till 10th 2019.
Over the last ten years the City
has transformed the centre into a City Lounge
-encouraging people to meet, stay and enjoy Rotterdam-
by reallocating road and parking space, slowing traffic speeds
and investing in quality public space at an impressive scale.
The results are transformative, well worth seeing,
and have delivered measurable increases
in footfall, dwell time, happiness and health.
They are an inspiration to anyone aspiring to similar benefits.
Visit the website Walk21 Rotterdam
for more information about the conference:
a preview of the speakers, program
(sessions, walkshops, social program)
and latest news and showcases.
On Wednesday, October 9th 2019, in parallel with Walk21, a National congress – in Dutch – will also take place.
This aims to build on the momentum gained over the last two years through the National Voetgangerscongres,
for walking in the Netherlands.
