The goal of the first workshop on Measuring Walking was to determine if there was sufficient support and common ground for the idea of harmonising and standardising some data collection methods. It turned out to be a day of engaged debates and encouraging comments about what and how walking could and should be measured. As a very positive outcome we reached a principal yet informal agreement on a list of dimensions ranging from counting pedestrians, capturing perceptions and assessing walkability to institutional aspects. Seven speakers provided input for the debate (see program). Their presentations are listed below in order of their ‚appearance‘ and can be downloaded by clicking on their names.
