May 31, 2018 at 6 pm, the House of Sustainable Development, Vélo Québec and CRE-Montréal will be hosting the conference Mobilizing the business community to support cycling in London, England with Chris Kenyon.

In 2014, Chris Kenyon launched Cycling Works, an awareness-raising campaign aimed at garnering support from CEOs for the development of a protected bike path network in the heart of London. After receiving a favourable response from nearly 200 CEOs, the operation was deemed an overwhelming success and led to the creation of the popular cycle superhighways.

During his visit to Montreal, Chris Kenyon will explain how this awareness-raising campaign was created, what will happen next and how it could be adapted to a city like Montréal.
