A highlight of the Wellington 2014 walking year was this talk from international walk researcher Daniel Sauter. Daniel spoke about the important 4 "I's" of walking - Inspiration, Identity, Infrastructure and Institutional arrangements. He noted the joy of walking and 'being' in a place, were as important in a liveable city as moving through spaces, and had some interesting research to show how we spend our time. He commented that he particularly enjoyed the debate during his presentation - thanks to those attending.
Living Streets Aotearoa and Cycling Action Network 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.
