Living Streets Aoteoaroa has announced  the programme for the third New Zealand Walking Summit to be held in Wellington on 24 – 25 June 2021.

The Summit will focus on some of the key issues for 2021 and beyond, including the Climate Change Commissions wero (challenge) to increase walk mode share by 25% by 2050, and the big shake up happening in our planning laws, expected to lead to more pedestrian-centric development.

We’ll hear directly from pedestrians, young and old, sharing their experiences of being out at night or in the day, on the bus or train and off again. There will be walkshops on getting to school, accessing everyday places, and the importance of green space and culture. And if that’s not enough we will have panel discussions to poke the issues and come up with some solutions for the path to achieve our pedestrian dreams.

Join the Minister for Transport Hon Michael Wood, Climate Commissioner James Renwick, Wellington Deputy Mayor and walking portfolio leader Sarah Free, and a host of others to lace up your shoes and inspire us for a better future.
