Living Streets Aotearoa organises conferences that bring together delegates, leaders and advocates from government, academia, planning, engineering, community groups, health, environment, design, and business with the goal of creating walking-friendly communities.
The 2012 conference will be the first combined walking and cycling conference held from 22-24 February 2011. The conference will be held in Hastings, one NZTA's model communities. The focus of this conference is on everyday walking and cycling for transport, recreation and tourism. Very appropriately, the conference is called 2 Walk and Cycle.

Living Streets also has links with Walk21 which organises an international walking conference each year. Gay Richards is attending the Walk21 in Vancouver in 2011, presenting Christchurch' Greening the Rubble project. In 2009 our Project Officer Janet Lawson was in New York for the Walk21 conference and filed this report and photo presentation.
