Bikenomics Seminar in Dublin City Council
Stephen Purcell, Director at FAC, hosted a seminar on the economic benefits of cycling in Dublin City Council’s Woodquay premises on Friday, 16th September.
The Bikenomics seminar featured Kees van Ommeren of Decisio, a Dutch economic research and consulting firm that specialises in spatial economic issues and is a leader in helping decision-makers understand the economic impacts of active transportation, in particular, cycling.
“Bikenomics is the process of optimising the economic, social and environmental potential of cycling in cities”
Dublin City Council representatives, including the city Walking and Cycling Promotion Officer, Sarah Scannell, attended the seminar and gave valuable insights about what is offered to cyclists in Dublin City and the infrastructural challenges around cycling and the provision of bike parking.
FAC and Decisio previously collaborated on the VITRUV project, which developed tools to support urban planners to consistently integrate security issues into their considerations.
