Before the 2011 Walk21 Vancouver Conference officially gets underway, join practitioners from across BC, Canada and the world for a day of learning and discussion on current topics in school- and youth-focussed transportation.

- TDM (Transportation Demand Management) in high schools;
- Programs and strategies for rural schools and communities; and
- Road safety in Canada and around the world.
- Note: if you have a topic you think should be included, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
A morning of introductions and panel presentations will be followed by a catered lunch and an opportunity to network and reflect.

Graphic facilitator extraordinaire Avril Orloff will be documenting the discussions as they unfold, creating a mural to capture the ideas and issues that emerge.
