Friday May 25, 2012 the Embassy of the Netherlands in Warsaw hosted a conference on bicycling organized in cooperation with the Dutch Cycling Embassy. The objective of the conference was to let Polish professionals in traffic and bicycle infrastructure learn about the Dutch expertise on cycling. The program (appendix 1) consisted of presentations about the Dutch knowledge on cycling and a hands-on training where the Dutch design principles were applied to real Warsaw streets. A team of two Dutch cycling on cycling managed the conference. Some 40 Polish traffic professionals participated in the conference: officers from the city of Warsaw, its districts and some other cities, civil servants of the national road administration, representatives of cyclists organizations and some traffic consultants.
In Warsaw, we organized a one day ThinkBike Workshop, in which Polish professionals were trained on the subject of cycling policies.
