The City of Vienna is proud to host the Walk21 conference from 20 to 23 October 2015. The motto “stepping ahead” promotes activities and innovations towards the future of our resilient cities and healthy living environments.
The Walk21 Conference brings together experts from the fields of walking promotion, research, policy, planning and delivery. It is an opportunity to learn from international experience and to showcase local challenges and solutions. The conference will be attended by more than 700 delegates from all continents.
The four main conference themes are:
- Walking towards new public spaces
- Walking towards resilient cities
- Walking towards safety and health
- Walking together
The Walking Visionaries Awards highlight new ideas, big and small, for fulfilling the potentials of walking for liveable communities. The programme supports individuals and organisations from across the globe, from different professional backgrounds and cultural contexts alike. Participants in the Walking Visionaries Awards are united by one thought: that walking is an integral element of a good, just and sustainable city. Share your ideas and projects to win a Walking Visionary Award and participate in the global discourse on walking and liveable communities.
