Resource – Dr John Grant at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 17 March

Posted in Events, Models, Policies, Research, SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on March 31st, 2008

Dr John Grant, from JA Grant & Assoc., http://www.jagrant.com.au/, was the first presenter at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table – Mobility, 17 March. The title of his talk was “Walking to a more sustainable future – Solvitur Ambulando”.

Dr John Grant is consultant who specialises in Walking – but there is much more to walking than just walking! The approach to his company is summarised (from their website) as: “Efforts to improve walkability include support for people who walk; or who have a disability and are required to walk; or who use mobility aids (wheelchairs, walking frames, shopping jeeps etc.); or who use prams or pushers for children”. Walking is not only a means of transport but also improves an individual’s health, is a major form of recreation for people of all ages, and is an enjoyable way of using public space.
