CALL FOR PAPERS
Australia: Walking the 21st Century -
- An International Walking Conference
20th- 22nd February 2001. Perth, Western Australia.

Introduction

The recent publication of the Australian Pedestrian Charter followed a
National Pedestrian Summit (held in Sydney in September 1999). The Charter
was released for adoption and incorporation into the policies and practices
of all relevant agencies. [It can be read in its entirety at
http://www.walk.com.au/pedcouncil/summit_charter.html]

Paralleling the development of the Australian Pedestrian Charter, the
Transport Department of Western Australia was finalising the development of
Perth Walking: The Metropolitan Region Pedestrian Strategy. Completed in
December of 1999, Perth Walking was launched by the WA Minister for
Transport shortly thereafter. Both the Australian Pedestrian Charter and
Perth Walking address principles of accessibility, health and well being,
safety and personal security, sustainability and environment, and equity.
They also share commonality in their recommendations of the steps needed to
ensure successful implementation of both the Charter and Perth Walking.

The stated purpose of the Australian Pedestrian Charter is to address the
simple act of walking - an activity available to almost all, taken for
granted by many, yet ignored at our peril. Sometimes we walk because we have
no alternative; at other times because that is our preference. Walking can
be many things - a means of transport, a way of keeping healthy, a form of
relaxation, and a sport. It can be a gregarious social activity or a
solitary opportunity to meditate. It varies with whim and circumstance. The
craving never recedes, even as age or disability take their inevitable toll.
But walking remains what it has always been - a fundamental and universal
means of transport for us all.

This basic mode of transport and communication must be able to coexist with,
and complement, other modes. Yet the culture and social infrastructure
associated with the private motor car has tended to dominate. Through
overuse and misuse, the car, seen by many as the preferred mode of
independent mobility, has become the greatest single threat to the freedom,
availability and simple mobility of walking. The predominance of vehicles in
towns and cities has also led to unacceptable levels of congestion and
pollution.

Australia is no exception to the many countries, the world over, that have
experienced a decline in walking trips. It too is seeking ways to reverse
this trend and to encourage more people to walk. Where these countries
differ, however, is in the timing of the their recognition of the issue and
the stage reached in their attempts to rectify the situation.

The purpose of this conference is therefore to present you with the
opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences and contribute to the
development of walking in all such countries. Your attendance will also give
you the opportunity to learn from other experts and also assist you to:

     - Develop research, policy and practice;
     - Provide encouragement and motivation;
     - Get people walking the 21st Century.

The Delegates

It is anticipated that those attending would include representatives of:
     * Community walking groups and the public;
