How can cities create Gender+ Aware Cycling Policies?

Angela van der Kloof

Thursday, 10 September; 11:30-12:30 BST

A growing number of cities are placing a higher importance on understanding gender as it relates to cycling planning and policies. However, many are not quite sure where to start, what information, guidance or data is available to support the decision making process, or how this can be used to create realistic, tangible policy. To generate discussion, Angela talks you through the mind map she has created to start contemplating how cities can create gender+ aware cycling policies. Exploring issues of awareness, potential existing bias’, cooperation and participation she provides five steps to creating these policies. In Thursday’s panel, participants will have the opportunity to provide their own insights and feedback to help further the discussion of gender+ aware cycling policies and give ideas on how to better establish these concepts within the policy development process.
