Thematic Pathways for Walk21 Hong Kong

July 15, 2016

 

We are excited about the conference program for Walk21 Hong Kong.

We have woven through the intense five-day schedule the themes and some key ideas to explore during your visit to Hong Kong.  Here, we present some nuggets to wet your appetite for the event in October.

Explore Hong Kong:
On Monday, kickstart your conference with the Hong Kong Showcase in the morning to learn about key projects to make the city more walkable.

 

On Tuesday 'Integrating Walking and Public Transportation in Mega-cities' and Designing the Layered City will let you dig into the details
 

On Wednesday learn about designing for climate and density and the "Air quality challenge for walking in Hong Kong" before participating in the Design Charette on Thursday. On Friday you can join a Walkshop to explore the streets and key projects of the city on foot.

Walking and technology: you can explore the creative ways people are engaging with walkers on the street, using technology to make it easier to find your way, link with other transport modes and meet up with fellow walkers.  

Walking with multiple benefits:  we have presentations about walking to school, walking environments for our aging societies, accessibility for everyone and walking safely

Measuring and modelling walking: counting walking, modelling impacts and developing apps to support walking will all be discussed through Roundtables and Breakout sessions.

Promoting walking
Start with building alliances on Monday, followed by community and stakeholder engagement and Ideas and Innovation on Tuesday and the Power of Partnerships plenary. On Thursday join the panel to craft a Vision for walking in Hong Kong.
