Introductory workshop


This workshop is an introduction to the issues related to active transportation. Organized in conjunction with Vélo Québec’s On the Move in the Community program, it aims to provide participants with practical information and tools they can use to help reverse current trends and make active transportation a community priority. The structure of the workshop is flexible and can be adjusted to suit participants’ needs and expectations.
