National New Zealand Walking Summit


The 2017 National New Zealand Walking Summit is here! This event is an exciting opportunity for those involved in the walking movement to explore our theme of  'how to make New Zealand a world leading walking place' including:

  • Ben Wooliscroft our featured speaker that will inspire walking champions from across New Zealand "Why can't we walk"

  • Break-out sessions to create new opportunities and share best practices

  • With September's election looming this is the time to share our agendas and hear from political parties on how they will make our towns and cities Walking places

  • New Zealand panel, and Australian and UK voices on walking

  • Saturday 29 July an intensive skill-based training to equip attendees to manage their communications to progress the Walking Summit agenda in their own networks - register here for this added bonus session

Attendees will explore the growing power of walking and how through the creation of vital and vibrant communities, we can help bridge community divides and overcome existing disparities. 

The New Zealand National Walking Summit is the premier opportunity for community advocates, not for profit representatives, government officials, and transport, health, urban design and planning professionals to share best practices and stories, increase the visibility of key issues, build support for the walking movement, and create momentum for the work ahead.
