'cycle BOOM' Final Conference | Central Library | Manchester
Wednesday, 28 September 2016 from 10:00 to 15:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This conference will present a summary of the key findings of the 'cycle BOOM' study, with selected examples of evidence and also recommendations for promoting cycling as part of a broader age friendly cities agenda.
The conference is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The aim of the cycle BOOM project was to develop a better understanding of how the design of the built environment and technology shapes engagement with, and experience of cycling as people get older, and how this affects their independent mobility, health and wellbeing. And following this, to provide advice to policy makers and practitioners on how the built environment and technology could be better designed to support and promote cycling among current and future older generations in order to improve independent living, health and wellbeing.
Location: Central Library | Manchester City Cente | M2 5PD
