Rebecca Henderson will be speaking to the City's Cycling Advisory Committee (CAC) on March 20, in a talk entitled, "Cost-benefit analysis of cycling interventions. What counts? And, who decides?".
Cycling programs, projects and infrastructure investments provide inherently social benefits. The social benefits are to the individual and society, and many benefits tend to be overlooked or undervalued. Therefore, a greater acceptance of “what counts” can better address health equity and the social determinants of health in cycling decisions.
Rebecca is London Cycle Link's CAC Liaison and is a doctoral candidate at Western, studying cycling collisions.
Note that CAC meetings are open to the public, but only members and invited guests may speak.
