Keynote speaker: Amy Child

Amy Child, Senior Transport Planner, Arup will share her thoughts on the role of active modes in creating liveable and equitable cities at the 10th Making Cites Liveable Conference.

The walkability of a city is a key indicator to the liveability of a city. Be it for business or leisure, those who walk are creators of a sense of place. Walking instead of using transport reduces congestion, and improves air quality and social inclusion.

Amy will draw upon her recent experience in developing walking and cycling strategies in Western Australia and Victoria as well as Arup’s publication ‘Cities Alive: Towards a Walking World’.

The full lineup of keynote speakers can be viewed on the Making Cities Liveable Conference website.
