Free webinar on the Health economic assessment tool (HEAT) for walking and cycling, 06 November 2017

European Cyclists' Federation & World Health Organisation-Europe offer free HEAT webinar on 06 Nov, 2017 at 14:00 CET. Local authorites are invited to join the webinar and get familiar with HEAT and how to use the tool to build business cases for investment in walking and cycling projects.

Spend 60 minutes 06 November, 2017 with a top team from WHO & ECF learning how the HEAT tool is developing, and how it’s being used to promote cycling across Europe.

ECF used it to show the health value of cycling is almost €200 billion per year. In the Netherlands researchers show it’s 3% of Dutch GDP. What’s the value of health and cycling in your city, region or country? And how can you use this kind of information for your city, region or country to convince decision makers?

Programme:

  • How to use the HEAT: Basics & what’s next- by Nick Cavill, PhD, an independent health expert who has worked with WHO on development & promotion of HEAT since its conception.
  • Valuing Cycling – Using HEAT results to promote cycling - by Randy Rzewnicki, PhD, ECF Health policy officer working in the field for 20 years.
  • Q & A – your questions can be submitted before or during the webinar, by text or voice.
