Walking at night - how CPTED can be used to make the night walk-environment safer and more pleasant

Join us for a walk-shop looking at the issues of walking at night and how CPTED (crime prevention through environmental design) principles can help make the walk environment safer and more pleasant.

Living Streets together with the Urban Design Forum jointly present this walk from Willis and Boulcott Streets corner up (steep path and steps) to the Terrace and back down again. We will be joined by some experts in this field to highlight and discuss how good design helps. This walk will be of particular interest to those who plan, design, manage or construct pedestrian infrastructure as well as those with an interest in walking.

We will repair to Fusion bar, 2 Manners Street for a drink and further discussions at the end of the walk-shop (about 6pm). Please feel free to join us at the bar if you can't join us for the walk.

More information on walking safety research is available from Living Streets UK.

RSVP to wellington[at]livingstreets.org.nz so we have an idea of how many people are coming.
