2020 Cycling and Society Virtual Symposium

Transformative approaches for cycling in a changing world.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic the Cycling and Society symposium will be a little different this year. Although there won’t be a physical meeting, we’re keen to continue to facilitate dialogue and bring together cycling research and researchers from across the world.

The CSRG committee and the Healthy Active Cities team at University of Salford will be hosting:

  • an online collection of concise and creative contributions – for participants and interested parties to read and watch at their leisure (see the call for contributions – now closed);
  • a series of webinars across 10th and 11th September, discussing and reflecting on the online collection and featuring debates, interviews, discussants and Q&A.
