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.

National Voetgangerscongres

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.
