Call for Papers


For 2023, the city of Oxford will welcome more than 500 delegates to explore walking, cycling and wheeling opportunities created by wide-ranging changes in transport, social, environmental and economic trends.
Department for Transport executive agency Active Travel England has announced plans to make England a great walking and cycling nation, and committed £2 billion worth of funding to deliver its vision for 50% of trips in our towns and cities being made by walking, wheeling or cycling by 2030.

Oxfordshire County Council have ambitious plans to give residents more options for active travel, as outlined in its county-wide Local Transport and Connectivity Plan and its Active Travel Strategy.
By supporting and encouraging active travel – walking, wheeling and cycling – it aims to help improve people’s health and wellbeing, reduce traffic congestion and help address the climate crisis.
