Promoting Cycling and Walking for Sustainable and Healthy Cities: Lessons from Europe and North America (Lecture)
March 26, 2013 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
John Pucher is a professor in the School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Jersey. For over three decades, Pucher has examined differences in travel behavior, and transport systems and policies in Europe, Canada, the US, and Australia. During his presentation, Prof Pucher will discuss the programs and policies needed to make cycling and walking safe and convenient; the means by which Dutch, Danish, and German cities get virtually everyone on bikes for a wide range of purposes; and what North Carolina communities can do to increase walking and cycling.
