The International Conference on Transport & Health
The International Conference on Transport & Health (ICTH) is a the only private conference event in a global market. It was conceived by Karyn Warsow, a doctoral student at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and founder of the Transportation Public Health Link due to a personal frustration with traditional conference offerings. She met Jennifer Mindell, PhD, University College London, Editor-in Chief of the Journal of Transport & Health during the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in which both of these ladies had a vision of something unique; a socioscientific event that focuses on connecting delegates for future collaboration. Together, Karyn and Jenny, blend their cultural and professional expertise to organize and host ICTH.
ICTH is a direct participatory experience based on design thinking and experiential learning. Policy-makers, practitioners and academics from multiple disciplines and professional sectors involved in transport planning and engineering, public health, urban planning, spatial and architectural design, environmental planning, economics and beyond meet to share their stories of success and failure; build world-wide collaborative friendships; but most importantly, leave inspired!
ICTH is the only conference in a world-wide market fully dedicated to transport systems and health impacts. Interactive Hot Topic Workshops and abstract presentations (oral, pecha kucha and poster) are led by cross-disciplinary teams to demonstrate “how” non-traditional and innovative thinking can lead to creative problem solving. ICTH bridges the gap between scientific investigation and real-world application.
ICTH is held annually in different locations across the globe. The goal is to provide valuable insights into the health impacts of transport, urban planning, governance, strategic and policy decision-making, performance metric tools and the potential return on investment of a dynamic system.
Note that there will NOT be a conference held in 2020 due to the quick turn around time from ICTH 2019-Melbourne held in November 2019 to hosting ICTH in June 2020. In addition, there was concern by several delegates that they would be unable to attend ICTH 2020, due to the academic year funding stream.
