BikingWe are looking back on a few exhilarating days! The 2WALKandCYCLE Conference last week made sure that walking and cycling becomes everyone’s business. Lots of familiar faces and some new connections. Really interesting conversations, great insights, and a good collection of best practice examples. Once again, we concluded it is all about people and creating safe and supportive environments.

ViaStrada contributed to the programme in several ways.

NiklasNiklas has been with us since October 2019. He has been the first intern who we’ve ever had and we all agree that we’ve hit the jackpot – he’s been fantastic to work with across a wide range of our projects. As a student, his project work closely mirrored what ViaStrada does as a company. As such, he really hit the ground running. He’s a quick learner, super-intelligent, and a very pleasant person all round (did we mention his baking skills too?). All the best for your next placement.
