140 William Street, Level 2, Perth

Just a decade ago Vancouver was a typical car-dominated North American city with little in the way of traffic calming and not a single protected bike lane in the city centre. Today walking, biking and public transport make up 50% of trips in the City of Vancouver.

Chris and Melissa Bruntlett of Vancouver-based creative agency Modacity will discuss how Vancouver has dramatically increased walking, biking and public transport; how the Dutch cycling model is being adapted to cities across North America; and how the power of words and imagery can build political and community support for active transport. Their presentation will be followed by Q&A.

This free event is open to anyone interested in creating safer streets and stronger communities. It's particularly relevant for local government staff, elected members, transport planners, policy makers, public health professionals, community advocates, and walking and cycling organisations.

Registrations recommended.

Presented by Perth Bike Hub with support from Department of Transport and MetroCount.
