WATS is a multidisciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students at Western University who are passionate about researching and promoting safe cycling and walking as a means of transportation. Much of our current infrastructure both on campus and off is focussed on cars, and while we understand that cycling and walking is not for everybody (and not for every day), we believe that better support for active transportation will yield important and significant benefits. Cycling and walking is fun, and research clearly shows that it is good for body, brain, society, and environment.
We send out a bi-weekly newsletter by email and have a meeting every other week where all members are welcome. Click here for more information on how to join the discussion.
