Palmerston North and thinking about walking

Yes we do need to start the journey to a more walkable future, for our health, the planet, the economy and just because walking is fun and social. There are some really fantastic projects internationally that we could take bits from and adapt to what we want in New Zealand - its all about what we want after all. That vision is required from the top nudged along by us. Some of the first steps have already been taken with footpath maintenance funding now available and a revised Government Policy Statement on Transport. We need to see that turned into action on our streets.

2WalkandCycle Conference 6-8 July 2016

We invite you to attend the premier national conference addressing walking issues. Auckland will host the third 2WalkandCycle Conference.

The theme of the conference is 'moving towards healthy communities'. The conference’s focus is on active, human-powered transport to achieve healthier, smarter and more liveable cities. This can be achieved through balancing our extensive car travel network with better provision for walking and cycling.
