Register today for the Open Streets Study Tour October 6th-8th!
The Study Tour will feature classroom sessions, networking opportunities, a behind the scenes tour of New Brunswick’s industry leading Ciclovia. Both novice and experienced open streets organizers, active transportation advocates, policymakers, health and wellness professionals and foundations should consider attending. The study tour will be led by experts from The Open Streets Project, New Brunswick Ciclovia, and other leaders in the global open streets movement.
Attendees will learn about route design, partnering with local businesses and officials, social inclusion, ensuring public safety, recruiting volunteers, promotion, and evaluating open streets through measurable goals and metrics.
The study tour will be a smaller, more focused and hands-on version of the International Open Streets Summit events held each of the past four years: we plan on hosting approximately 25-35 leaders from across the country and the region to learn and share at this weekend-long gathering that includes experiencing the New Brunswick Ciclovia behind the scenes and in-person as a best practice case study.
NEW BRUNSWICK CICLOVIA
New Brunswick Ciclovia – a free, citywide initiative that closes the streets to cars and opens them to people – promotes healthy active living through experiencing New Brunswick’s vitality, livability, and diversity in a safe place for people to exercise and play. During Ciclovia, the streets become temporarily car-free for 5 hours for families to run, walk, skate, ride bikes, enjoy active events along the route, and explore the city streets.
