Velo-city Dublin 2019 calls for conference submissions

Velo-city 2019’s conference organisers — European Cyclists’ Federation and Dublin City Council — have made a call for submissions by October 22, 2018.

The European Cyclists’ Federation’s annual conference is the world’s largest conference in the area of cycling for transport. It is planned to take place at the Convention Centre Dublin on June 25-28, 2019.

The sub-title of the conference is ‘Cycling for the Ages’, its vision is “the cycling city of 2030”, and the three conference themes are: (1) technology, intelligent transport systems and data analytics; (2) health and social; and (3) environment and infrastructure.

The conference organisers said: “Following Velo-city’s proud tradition of interactive and engaging presentations, we invite you to share with us a proposal for a presentation which will inspire attendees, enrich the conference programme and help us to reflect the breadth of cycling experience globally.”

They added: “People who cycle are central to the Velo-city conference and ideally your presentation will engage with the human side of cycling, taking into consideration age and gender and the role of the bicycle as a tool to help us live our lives, no matter what our age.”

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
