We reported back in June that TCAT was invited to attend the Walk 21 Conference in the Hague. Walk21 is a widely respected international pedestrian policy conference. Nancy Smith Lea, TCAT Director, and Stephanie Tencer, TCAT Steering Committee member, were both invited to present at the conference, but TCAT needs funding so they can go.
Stephanie was invited to present her paper on the Walkability Study, a project commissioned by the City of Toronto to address community-based walkability tools.
Nancy was invited to present the findings of the Bloor Street Study, a survey of business owners’ support of active transportation. The results – high levels of support for investing in active transportation – provide another economic-based argument for supporting cycling and
walking in Toronto. The study was conducted in two neighborhoods over two years. Read the findings from the two Bloor St reports here and here
Please consider making a contribution or suggesting funding opportunities so Stephanie and Nancy can promote TCAT’s amazing work. Donations can be made by mail, fax or on-line by using TCAT’s donation page.
