For four years, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s Vision Zero Conference has been bringing leaders and expert voices from around the Delaware Valley and the country into Philadelphia for a day of talks, panels, and workshops. This year, the Bicycle Coalition’s 2020 Vision Zero gathering will both reflect upon the progress we’ve made in the region, and discuss the accelerated speed at which progress over the next four years will need to proceed to make our city safer.
On Saturday, March 7, 2020, join the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, Families for Safe Streets Greater Philadelphia, the Vision Zero Alliance, and hundreds of Philadelphians as we gather to learn, network, and discuss how we can work together to make Philadelphia work for all road users. Sliding-scale tickets for 20/20 VISION FOR VISION ZERO PHILADELPHIA are available now through the day of the conference.
This year we’ll be breaking the afternoon workshops into two tracks: Community Opportunities and Regional Planning Opportunities. People are totally welcome to mix and match workshops from either track, but we hope this structure will minimize the number of hard choices you’ll have to make between all of the great content.
Here are the workshops and panels we have planned for the day:
