PPS: Pro Walk, Pro Bike, Pro Place

September 8, 2014 - September 11, 2014

Te Partnership for Public Spaces conference was founded on the belief that greater access to walking and bicycling will create healthier individuals, cohesive neighborhoods, and vibrant communities.

Started by a hundred idealistic cyclists in 1980 as Pro Bike, the conference evolved to include walking—Pro Walk/Pro Bike—and, in 2012, under the stewardship of Project for Public Spaces, we incorporated Placemaking, creating new partnership opportunities and enhancing the movement’s potential impact on communities.

The 18th Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place, held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, in Pittsburgh is expected to draw 1,000 city planners, transportation engineers, public health advocates, elected officials, community leaders, and professional walking and bicycling advocates.

Over 100 breakout sessions, panel discussions, and poster sessions address the latest trends, research, and best practices. Plenary speakers bring perspectives from other disciplines, and other experiences to help improve and expand our practice.
