18 and 19 March

Tākina Convention Centre, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington

Conference theme: People Power: the path to low carbon transport

​With the impacts of climate change, leaders need to step up to the challenges of transforming our transport network and provide better options to get people where they want to go.

While we’ve seen great change through our recreational routes, our attention must now turn to transforming our urban centres to provide better transport options, so that everyone, even kids, can get around in climate-friendly ways.

Active transport has a central role to play in meeting society’s health, wellbeing and climate change mitigation objectives. We will showcase strategies and innovative projects that are helping to achieve these goals.

Keynote presenters: Janette Sadik-Khan (pictured above) and Salvador Rueda.

Registration is open. Don’t miss your spot! We hope to see you there.

Our usual time this year lands on Waitangi Day so we’re shifting to the following day. Hope you can join us.
