At Design Commission for Wales, 4th Floor Cambrian Buildings, Mount Stuart Square, Cardiff CF10 5FR

Chaired by DCFW Chief Executive, Carole-Anne Davies and Sustrans’ National Director Wales, Jane Lorimer, our guest panel will include:

- Lindsey Brown, Urban Designer, Sustrans Cymru
- Mat Jones, Architect & Lecturer, Coombs Jones Architects & UWE
- Allison Dutoit, Architect/Urban Designer & Lecturer, Gehl Architects & UWE
- Victoria Robinson, Development Management, Vale of Glamorgan Council

Join the conversation to discuss ways in which designers, architects and planners can engage with people in shaping everyday places.

In 2013, the Active Travel Act (Wales) 2013, a world first, became legislation.  The Act seeks to make walking and cycling the most natural and normal way of getting around for short, everyday journeys.  It aims to achieve modal shift, encouraging more us to leave the car at home.  This will not only reduce our impact on the environment but promote happier, healthier lifestyles and create safer communities.  This is no mean feat, and the Act recognises that to reach this goal, we need to change the way we design streets and spaces, not only in terms of the end product but in how we reach decisions about what changes to make.  All local authorities in Wales are currently developing a map of aspirational routes for walking and cycling and in doing so need to engage with people, particularly those choosing not to walk or cycle at the moment.
