Learning and sharing active transport knowledge and expertise

Thursday, 30 March 2023 - 7:30pm
Hybrid: Clayton Hotel Charlemont and Zoom

Listen back here.

No one is born knowing how best to plan and design public realm projects focused on improving the experience for people walking and cycling.

International practice for how best to consult, design and create more inclusive, healthy, and thriving urban neighbourhoods is constantly evolving. Cities all around the world are all looking to solve similar problems regarding carbon emissions, air and noise pollution, traffic congestion, public health, accessibility, and inclusive mobility. Many cities have learned lessons which we could build upon. Yet sometimes, what works in one city, might not always make sense to copy and paste to other locations with different legislation, legacies and cultures. Local situations sometimes require unique solutions, but ones that can more easily be arrived at with knowledge of what’s been trailed elsewhere.

So, come along this evening and hear pathways for learning and sharing active transport knowledge and expertise, at this month’s free, hybrid, public meeting.

Una Morrison is chairing the meeting with the following speakers:

  • Cian Ginty, Cycling Study Tours / Irish Cycle / Cycling For All
  • Robin van der Griend, Sustainable Mobility Consultant, Mobycon Academy
  • David O Connor, Head of Environment and Planning, TU Dublin

Angela van der Kloof, of Mobycon will be available for discussion during the Q&A.
Mairéad Forsythe, chair of the board of CyclistIE will be introducing this evening.

Hopefully see you at 7:30pm today, Thursday the 30th of March.

This in-person event will be hosted at the Clayton Hotel beside the The Barge Pub on the Grand Canal, and will be live streamed on zoom.

It will be of particular interest to professionals working in engineering, architecture and planning who want to find pathways to learning and understanding more about planning and delivering active travel infrastructure. The talks will also be of considerable interest to people advocating for safer cycling, who would like to find out how they can learn enough to be able to more effectively contribute to submissions on public consultations for cycle routes.

Really looking forward to seeing you there, please feel free to let friends and colleagues know about this event, they would also be very welcome.

No need to book if you are joining us in-person at The Clayton Hotel Charlemont, Dublin 2. If you are able to join us online, please register through Zoom here
