Walk21: Bogota – Walkable City
15 – 19 October, 2018
Background to The International Conference on Walking and Liveable Cities
Walk21 started in 2000 with a conference in London and the conference has been held every year since, in different cities around the world. Typically every other year the event has been hosted in Europe but every year always draws on the best information and presenters worldwide, and delegates come from around the globe.
The Walk21 conference series supports, encourages and inspires the Global Walking Network to:
- Confirm the importance of walking politically and in policy
- Provide an international platform for an inclusive discussion
- Acknowledge current research, practice and promotion
- Identify the need for future research and networking.
International delegates attending a Walk21 conference do so to have the opportunity to hear from leading professionals about programmes, policies and projects that really work and explore those themes in action through walking tours and visits arranged in the host city.
Walk21 conferences are well known and well respected as important events worldwide. Since 2002 the Walk21 conference has always attracted around 500 participants. The brand name (Walk21®) therefore has a valuable reputation as the international quality event where people meet. The event also highlights the ambitions of the host city and has a positive impact on the walking policy of the whole country. The event, above all, generates added international prestige for the host city and the involved organisations and institutions.
