Hackney Cycling Conference
Thursday 17 May 2018, 9.30am-5pm
Hackney Town Hall
This is the 7th annual Hackney Cycling Conference and the first major cycling conference after the local elections. It comes at a time when active travel is high on the political agenda. It’s the perfect time for professionals, politicians, academics and campaigners to come together and discuss the implications of these changes for our streets and neighbourhoods.
Walking will be central concern at the conference. London Living Streets campaigner, David Harrison, will discuss his vision for a Central London Walking Network. Tom Platt, head of policy and communications at Living Streets will also discuss low-traffic liveable neighbourhoods.
