Velo-City 2017 calls for papers on cycling best practice

Set for Arnhem-Nijmegen from June 13th to 16th 2017, the Velo-City conference has called for papers on best practice when it comes to cycling initiatives and designing in active travel.

Held annually, the event takes in best practice insight from around 1,000 to 1,500 specialists in cycling policy, advocacy, planning, engineers, architects and researchers, among others.

In the past the European Cyclist’s Federation organised event has been held in Copenhagen, Brussels, Barcelona, Montreal, Nantes and Taipei. This year’s event marks the third installment on Dutch soil, with prior events taking in cycling havens Groningen and Amsterdam.

Interestingly, the Velo-City site speculates that the Dutch have become “complacent” in their approach to cycling. The conference challenges the audience to think further on what can be achieved above and beyond current successes.

The program of Velo-city 2017 Arnhem-Nijmegen will be divided into 5 subthemes that will lead the way to the ‘Freedom of Cycling’.

  • Infrastructure
  • People
  • Bikenomics
  • Urban planning
  • Governance
