Call for Papers, Fourth International Conference on Walking
Like the fish not knowing it swims in water, we take walking for granted.
But after decades of being ignored, walking is at last gaining recognition as an activity and a mode of transport fundamental to our personal health and the health and sustainability of our communities.
Planning is now underway for "Walk21 IV: Health, Equity & Environment," the Fourth International Conference on Walking in the 21st Century. The conference will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, 1-3 May 2003. Past Walk21 conferences have taken place in London (2000), Perth, W.A. (2001) and San Sebastián, Spain (2002). The Portland conference is being organized by America Walks, a coalition of pedestrian advocacy organizations from across the US.
Walk21 IV will bring together professionals and activists in public health, safety, transportation, and community planning and design from around the world to help shift the global paradigm for how walking and pedestrians are viewed. Delegates will explore how walking is integrated into our infrastructures, our institutions, and our daily lives. The three themes of Health, Equity and Environment, will be woven together throughout the conference.
Abstracts for papers and presentations are now solicited. The deadline for submitting abstracts is Monday, September 16, 2002.
