Posted by Editor on 03/1/10
Vélo Québec Association invites its active transportation partners and community stakeholders from across Quebec and Canada to the country’s first rendezvous, in Montréal, Québec on June 3rd.
Among those slated to attend the On the Move in the Community! conference are urban planning professionals, public health and education practitioners, municipal and community representatives working on active transportation issues, as well as academics and consultants.
The conference will bring together forty local and international speakers and specialists. These experts in the field will present winning formulas that have proven successful in public awareness campaigns as well as cyclist- and pedestrian-friendly urban planning endeavours.
The following day [Friday, June 4th] a series of special workshops and practical field trips will share the latest active transportation initiatives to and from school, as well as urban design ideas that facilitate walking and cycling in our neighborhoods.
The On the Move in the Community! conference will take place during the annual Montreal Bike Fest, the most fun you can have on two wheels! What a great opportunity for visitors to discover the city through the world-famous Tour de l’Île de Montréal and Tour la Nuit rides or by riding a cutting-edge BIXI!
