Request for Proposals for Presentations, Panels and Workshops: 2020 Active Transportation Summit
The Street Trust's 2020 Active Transportation Summit will be held at the Oregon Convention Center on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Each year, hundreds of professionals and advocates from Oregon and SW Washington convene to discuss cutting edge transportation issues. The Active Transportation Summit is the place to share your latest research, project triumph and innovative idea among colleagues and friends.
The Street Trust is now accepting proposals for workshops, presentations, and panel discussions. To submit your proposal complete this form by 8:00 pm on Friday, November 22. The Summit Planning Committee will confirm proposals in December.
The guiding theme for the 2020 Summit is Climate Action - Transportation Justice. How can our transportation investments, programs and plans impact the crisis of climate change? How can we center transportation access, options and outcomes for low income people and people of color, who are impacted by climate change and least served by our transportation system today? How do we move from knowledge of these challenges to action? Proposals may address the theme head-on or as a facet of a larger project or program.
We value community-driven processes and solutions, and encourage applications from youth, grassroots advocates, and community groups whose primary focus may not be on active transportation. Proposals that demonstrate how transportation choices intersect with other community concerns and goals are especially welcome. We value racial diversity and perspectives from different geographies. You are welcome to propose a presentation as an individual or in a group.

About the Active Transportation Summit
More than 350 people attended the 2019 Active Transportation Summit. Attendees include: state legislators; policy makers; local and national figures in the biking, walking, and active transportation movement; directors of transportation departments and community-based organizations; engineers and planners; land managers; business owners; health professionals; and community advocates.
The Summit on March 18 will be comprised of workshops, panels, round table discussions, and a keynote address, with a no-host happy hour event in the evening. Offerings on day two, March 19, may include specialized professional trainings, network meetings, a transportation general assembly, and mobile workshops held at satellite locations.
