The Transport and Mobility Forum Cork presents the 2019 Mix Your Mode Seminar entitled:
‘Healthy Commuting Options and the Built Environment’
FRIDAY 29th MARCH 2019
CORK CITY HALL
This year’s theme ‘Healthy Commuting Options and the Built Environment’ aims to explore how the built environment influences active travel. The seminar offers stakeholders a great opportunity to hear about and discuss modern sustainable and active travel developments and goals for Cork as well as learn about the Healthy Ireland Initiative, the work of SUSTRANS in Northern Ireland, the Southern Regional Assembly, EU Projects and other best practice examples here and abroad. The half day seminar will be a combination of talks and discussions with opportunity for networking during the interval refreshments.
Mix Your Mode on your journey to the Seminar!
As part of this year’s Seminar we are asking you to ‘Walk the Talk’ and ‘Mix Your Mode’ when travelling there and back. A discussion will feature on the day looking at your experience of the different modes of transport and how they could potentially be improved. If you are taking the bus or train, why not hop on one of our public bikes and cycle to City Hall where there is a doc to park up (https://www.bikeshare.ie/cork.html). Or you could bring along your own bike, we even have a pump station outside the venue. If you are driving, you could choose to avoid the city centre traffic and parking fees by jumping on the Black Ash Park and Ride which drops you right outside City Hall (https://www.corkcity.ie/en/council-services/services/parking-services/where-to-park/the-black-ash-park-ride.html). You could simply use your legs and soak up the atmosphere of the third friendliest city in the world (https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/discover/cork-voted-third-friendliest-city-in-the-world-861952.html)! Or surprise us with an even more unusual mixture of travel modes!
