Streets for our future: Moving from knowledge to practise and outcomes

Over the past 12 years, research and practise collaborators in New Zealand have been involved in a programme of work to demonstrate and evaluate safe and healthy street design. There is a compelling case for doing things differently, but key ingredients are needed for successful towns and cities in the Future. Dr Hamish Mackie will present the public health case for better streets and then tell the story of Self Explaining Roads and Te Ara Mua Future Streets. Finally, he will suggest steps for progressing from knowledge to nation-wide meaningful change, for a healthier transport system.
