This year’s London Walking and Cycling Conference is taking place as a webinar series. Formerly the ‘Hackney Cycling Conference’, this event, which is organised in partnership with the City of London Corporation and sponsored by Steer, has become a fixture in the calendar of professionals, campaigners, and elected members eager to explore new ideas.

We are currently seeking papers with case studies, examples of best practise, or innovative research and analysis from around the world on the following:

2nd Webinar Theme – Walking and Cycling Whilst Black

Papers should ideally focus on both walking and cycling, although we will consider submissions that focus on either walking or cycling.


The webinar will be 1 hour in length. Each speaker will be given 10 minutes to present their paper and should be prepared to answer questions during the half hour Q&A session at the end (e.g. 3 presentations followed by questions directed at the 3 presenters).

How to submit:
