Renowned Speakers Announced for Australian Walking & Cycling Conference

Adelaide, South Australia

This year’s annual Australian Walking & Cycling Conference (AWCC) will commence from Thursday morning 30th September with a strong line-up of experts presenting across two days.

Due to covid restrictions, the AWCC will be online for the second consecutive year, but organisers are hoping that attendees in non-locked down states can gather together at various ‘hubs’ containing perhaps 20 or 30 people in a meeting room.

Dr Meredith Glaser will be the opening day’s keynote presenter. Meredith is an American urban planner, lecturer, and sustainable mobility researcher, based in the Netherlands since 2010 at the Urban Cycling Institute (University of Amsterdam). Her research focuses on public policy innovation, knowledge transfer, and capacity building for the accelerated implementation of sustainable transport goals. She is one of the world’s most experienced educators for professionals seeking to learn Dutch transport planning policies and practices.

Day two’s keynote presenter on Friday 1st October will be someone well-known and respected by many who are involved in any aspects of transport planning or advocacy throughout Australia and beyond.

Fiona Campbell is Manager Cycling Strategy at the City of Sydney, where she’s been working since 2008. She is deeply committed to making Sydney a bike-friendly city and to helping others achieve similar goals. Fiona is currently managing the rollout of 11 new City of Sydney cycleway projects, three of which are permanent designs to upgrade temporary Covid-19 pop-up cycleways.

Fiona’s presentation is entitled Global Lessons Local Opportunities, which is the theme of this year’s conference.
