Rotterdam, The Netherlands
The City of Rotterdam is delighted to be hosting the 20th International Conference on Walking and Liveable Communities in partnership with Walk21 from October 7th till 10th 2019. Over the last ten years Rotterdam has transformed the centre into a City Lounge. Encouraging people to meet, stay and enjoy Rotterdam by reallocating road and parking space, slowing traffic speeds and investing in quality public space at an impressive scale. The results are well worth seeing, and have delivered measurable increases in footfall, dwell time, happiness and health. They are an inspiration to anyone aspiring to similar benefits.
