Walk21 Rotterdam: call for papers
The City of Rotterdam is delighted to be hosting the 20th International Conference on Walking and Liveable Communities in partnership with Walk21 from October 7th till 9th 2019.
Over the last ten years the City has transformed the centre into a City Lounge – encouraging people to meet, stay and enjoy Rotterdam – by reallocating road and parking space, slowing traffic speeds and investing in quality public space at an impressive scale. The results are transformative, well worth seeing, and have delivered measurable increases in footfall, dwell time, happiness and health. They are an inspiration to anyone aspiring to similar benefits.
As the city continues to grow, public space is coming under increasing pressure, creating both an opportunity and a sense of urgency to translate the ambition of a walkable neighbourhood network. Challenging traditional car mobility, repurposing existing infrastructure and integrating walking with cycling and public transport is helping translate the vision into citywide gains.

The City of Rotterdam invites you to submit your ideas, papers and proposals for Walk21 2019 under the themes ‘Smart’, ‘Healthy’ and ‘For Everyone’. Important: The call closes on February 22nd 2019. Proposals submitted after this date will no longer be included in the assessment.
