While cycling offers unparalleled benefits for short and medium trips: improved physical health, fewer greenhouse gas emissions,and  lower transport costs, significant obstacles stand in the way of its universal adoption. Systemic challenges prevent underserved groups like people with disabilities, children, women, and caregivers from enjoying the freedom and convenience of cycling. Exposing and empowering this latent demand is crucial to achieving cycling cities for all.

In this webinar, we will hear from advocates and experts about how to shift the narrative about who and for what types of trips cycling is for. By addressing infrastructure shortcomings, advocating for inclusive policies, and challenging societal norms, we can pave the way for a future where cycling is truly for everyone.

This event will feature live interpretations in Spanish.

Noni completed her bachelor’s degree in Human Geography and Urban Planning at the University of Groningen, where she developed her love for creating livable, people-centric cities.

Her recent works include mainstreaming gender equity, disability, and social inclusion (GEDSI) in non-motorized transportation and electric vehicle projects, as well as tactical urbanism initiatives.
