Come to GCAT’s Annual General Meeting and After Party!

Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation invites the public to GCAT’s  Annual General Meeting and after party on Feb. 22!

You will hear about the accomplishments and goals of GCAT to make Guelph one of the best places in Ontario for cycling and walking. Our guest speaker will be Benita Van Miltenburg, Transportation Demand Management Coordinator from the City of Guelph. Her topic is “Lessons from Amsterdam…. and Hamilton!”

Benita entered the field of sustainable transportation thanks to a passion for population and environmental health, and a love of recreational and utilitarian cycling.  She worked as project manager for Cycle Hamilton, and volunteered as Chair of the Advocacy and Communications Committee.

In conjunction with her graduate degree, Benita attended the University of Amsterdam’s Planning the Cycling City course, and will be speaking about her experience.

Come out and get inspired!
