The Walk21 conference series supports, encourages and inspires the Global Walking Network to confirm the importance of walking politically and in policy, provide an international platform for an inclusive discussion, acknowledge current research, practice and promotion and identify the need for future research and networking.
International delegates attending a Walk21 conference do so to have the opportunity to hear from leading professionals about programmes, policies and projects that really work and explore those themes in action through walking tours and visits arranged in the host city.
Welcomed by the mayor of Bogotá, Enrique Peñalosa, this is the annual event of Walk 21, a network dedicated to supporting and promoting more walking to help make walking an enjoyable part of daily transport, recreation and health through effective policies, programs and planning all over the world.
