DENVER "STREETS FOR PEOPLE" SUMMIT
Never before has it been more important that Denver provide ample and safe spaces for her people to be physically active and to connect with community.
The 3rd Annual Denver Streets for People Summit is a locally hosted, globally inspired conference centered on creating safer and more inviting streets and public spaces while reducing car dependency and fighting climate change.
Over 4 days of virtual discussion and networking we’ll explore opportunities and resources, consider best practices from around the world and engage decision-makers, implementers and one another towards action that encourages walking, biking, rolling, and taking transit while making Denver’s neighborhoods equitable, healthy and active.
We value and proactively engage people of diverse experiences and perspectives, and we treat all people, regardless of age, race, ability, or other background, with kindness and respect. When you register for this event, you are joining our community in embracing this value. Thank you for making Denver Streets for People Summit a welcoming, safe, and positive environment for all.
** COVID-19 NOTE: We are monitoring the impact of COVID-19 in our city and making necessary changes to our activities to protect public health of our city, including transitioning all sessions and panels to virtual access. We will offer optional in-person walk opportunities for a limited number of attendees only via pre-registration. Should plans change according to City or State guidance, we will notify attendees via the email address used for registration.
** SCHOLARSHIP NOTE: We understand that many individual and organizational budgets are tight, particularly this year. If cost is at all a barrier for you, we invite you to register via the "Community Scholarship" no-cost ticket price. This is available on an honor system for any potential attendee who needs it.

The Denver Community Active Living Coalition (CALC) is a grant-funded program from the Denver Department of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI). DOTI is a modern agency focused on increasing mobility and safety while reducing congestion and fighting climate change. CALC is a diverse group of community members who care about health and safety through physical activity. We believe that all Denver residents, regardless of age or ability, should have equitable access to safe and vibrant places to walk, bike, roll, ride transit, and play.
The grant program is sponsored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) through the Cancer, Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease (CCPD) Grants Program.
The Denver Streets Partnership is a coalition of community organizations advocating for people-friendly streets in Denver. Our mission is to reclaim Denver’s streets for people walking, rolling, biking, and using transit, and to build safe, healthy, and equitable communities. On people-friendly streets, walking, rolling, biking, and transit are the first choices of transportation for all people. Streets for people are living, public spaces that connect us to jobs, schools, services and each other, and are designed to foster health, happiness, and opportunity for all.
