Expert international transport study tours
Empowering our leaders to create better communities
In 2014 We Ride Australia, in partnership with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, led the first Australian ‘Influentials’ study tour to the Netherlands. The 10 leaders participating in the delegation returned to Australia with knowledge, ideas and most importantly inspiration about the possibilities to create better cycling environments and transport systems in Australia.
Based on the success of the 2014 study tour and its ability to drive change within our communities, the Foundation organised delegations to travel to the Netherlands in 2015 and 2017. An expert study tour focusing on smart technology in transport travelled to the west coast of the United States and Canada in 2019.
Our delegations experience a broad range of transport environments with site visits, presentations and meetings that educate, inspire and empower all participants during an intense five day immersion in worlds best practice in active transport planning, integration and leadership.
The program is designed to encourage politicians, elected representatives, planners, engineers and key executives to develop their own unique visions for thriving cities and people-focused places once they return to Australia.
