•    Finding your own way
•    Keeping well
•    Enjoying your city
•    Saving you money.

As part of Green City Week, City University London and the City Collaborative Transport Hub invite you to an afternoon symposium and debate about walking (and cycling) in the city.

The opportunities for people in London to walk for health, pleasure, work and leisure are increasing, helped by noticeable improvements in facilities, technologies and attitudes.  At the same time, our society is increasingly aware that physical activity is essential to everyone's health and wellbeing. Unless participation in this essential activity becomes much wider our city still risks a frightening spiral of deteriorating public health and quality of life due to relative inactivity and related factors.

Experts from the domains of public transport, health and urban design will join some of City University London's academics to make short contributions on new evidence, practice and thinking about walking, cycling and urban physical activity.

At City our teams conduct practical research and development around accessibility, participation, policy and technology.

You can expect some of the insights from our speakers to surprise and even shock!

A lively question and answer session is promised and we hope you will join us for a networking reception with refreshments immediately afterwards.
