TCAT welcomes the chance to get out and speak about our work and have had many opportunities to do so. Below are presentations that TCAT staff delivered at two recent important conferences:
On September 30, 2014 Nancy Smith Lea presented the research paper Identifying and Overcoming Barriers to the Implementation of Active Transportation Policies at the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Conference in Montreal to a packed room full of engineers. A lively discussion followed the presentation, with hot topics including how to incorporate active transportation into Level of Service and TAC’s street design guidelines.
On October 4th, 2014 Mikey Bennington presented on the Active Neighbourhoods Canada project along with Brianna Salmon of Peterborough GreenUp at the 2014 Peterborough and the Kawarthas Cycling Summit. This launched the second Active Neighbourhoods Canada project in Ontario, which will take place in the downtown south neighbourhood in Peterborough in collaboration with GreenUp, the local residents association, Trent University, the Trent Centre for Community-Based Education, BIKE!, Thin City Skateshop, the City of Peterborough and the Peterborough County-City Health Unit.
