Bicycle Urbanism Symposium, June 19-22
Reimagine bicycle-friendly cities!
The International Bicycle Urbanism Symposium will bring together practitioners, academics, policy makers and advocates with diverse backgrounds including urban design, planning, transportation, engineering, landscape architecture, and public policy.
Over two days, participants will explore the way that cities can best encourage and accommodate bicycle travel in the future. Speakers from around the globe will lead sessions on topics including: imagining the 20-30 year future of bicycle-friendly cities, integrating bicycling into urban planning and design, effects of bike use on health and environment, policies for developing bicycle infrastructure and programs, best practices in bicycle facility design and implementation, advances in bicycle and gear technology and economic contributions, and implementing bicycle policies and plans-education, registration, finance, political, and public acceptance.
The keynote address will be given by noted bicycle researcher John Pucher. In addition to the sessions at the University of Washington, participants will have the option of taking field trips (on bike-of course!) to see and explore Seattle’s bike infrastructure.
Registration includes access to all plenary and track sessions, the opening reception on Wednesday evening, dinner on Thursday and a light breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday.
