Description

Is walking the miracle cure for our public health crisis?

Come and join experts from across the UK and beyond as we discuss the link between making our streets better for walking and improved public health.

Could our transport choices save lives? Is walking the answer to all our health problems? How can we get more people walking and make them happier and healthier?

Book your place now. Our speakers include:

  • Professor Shane O’Mara, author of In Praise Of Walking, will present new science of how we walk and why it is good for us.

  • Panel discussion featuring regional walking and cycling leads:
    Chris Boardman MBE, Cycling and Walking Commissioner, Greater Manchester
    Lee Craigie, Active Nation Commissioner, Scotland
    Will Norman, Walking and Cycling Commissioner, London
