Kickstand bicycle planning & policy master class


Kickstand bicycle planning & policy master class
naar boven

Giving communities a push in their quest for more pedalling is the aim of the Kickstand Sessions. These master classes combine Dutch, Danish and North American expertise to present best practices and advice in a way that is relevant. Because integrating the bicycle into the transportation structure of a city requires stakeholders from so many different realms to share a common vision, our classes offer a holistic approach that is educational for all types of professionals and community members. We cover policy, planning and culture through interactive exercises, discussions and group activities.

To bring Kickstand to your area, contact Elizabeth Allingham in Canada and Mary Hudson Embry in the United States.
