The Decade to Change

Walk this way to #Walk21Ireland! Check out this video of our morning walk around TU Dublin Grangegorman to celebrate Walk21 Ireland with special guest Minister of State for Public Health & Wellbeing, Frank Feighan T.D.

Walk21, the global walking summit, brings together practitioners, academics, planners, politicians and citizens to celebrate the importance of walking and re-imagine a world that is more liveable and sustainable. We know Walk21 Ireland will be the event to renew all of our energy for walking!

This year’s conference theme, The Decade to Change, has never been more pressing, exploring how supporting and encouraging walking can help deliver Sustainable Development Goal commitments by 2030.

We invite you to join us in-person or online this September to discuss the critical imperatives for walking. We look forward to welcoming your work and ideas as we reach into all corners of the world to gather the experience, expertise and ideas to push the international walking agenda forward.

Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), in partnership with the Government of Ireland, is proud to host Walk21 Ireland – the 22nd International Walk21 Conference on Walking and Liveable Communities. Walk21 Ireland is supported by the Government of Ireland’s Department of Transport, Department of Health and Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

Be inspired by global thought leaders and change-makers from across the walking sector.

Walk21 Ireland is a hybrid event – participate in person or online. Programme highlights include the World Cafe on safety, a Youth Forum and much more.
