Not so fast! Slowing down for a healthier, wealthier, and more sustainable city

Seminar by Dr Rodney Tolley, Active Transport Consultant, Researcher, Presenter and Walk21 Conference Director

Dr Rodney Tolley has been involved in the field of active, sustainable transport for over 40 years, first as a university researcher and teacher, and now as an experienced international speaker and consultant. He has led hundreds of presentations, walkabouts and workshops in communities across the world, including over 50 cities in Australasia.

He was a founder member of the Steering Group for Walk21 - the first International Conference on Walking and Livable Cities - and has been the Conference Director for the nineteen Walk21 Conferences since then. He was central to the development of the International Charter for Walking, which has now been signed by over 500 mayors to lead their communities towards better walkability. He is currently finalising his most recent book (with Paul Tranter of UNSW Canberra) on ‘Future slow cities: Healthier places to live, work and play'.

His passion is walking – and talking walking. Come along and hear from Dr Tolley in this free seminar presented by the University of South Australia.
