PechaKucha: rapid fire presentation format event

Foundation for Integrated Transport

Road safety

Foundation for Integrated Transport x PechaKucha

On Wednesday 8th May, FIT held its first special PechaKucha event! The webinar was a unique opportunity to hear from the voices of some of our remarkable grant recipients and fellows, who are leading the charge for sustainable transport. In a world where car-centric infrastructure reigns, our speakers are on a mission to amplify the importance of investing in public transport, walking, and cycling infrastructure to foster fairness and accessibility. From reshaping attitudes about car dependency to igniting community-driven action, these inspiring individuals are driving real change.

What is PechaKucha?

In short, it really is about getting creative people together over a drink for a fun and casual gathering to share ideas, stories, thoughts, holiday snaps, anything really all in the PechaKucha 20×20 format.

Sound like a million other speaking events you have been to? Well, what makes a PechaKucha Night different is the simple quick-fire presentation style we use – each presenter gets 20 slides that are 20 seconds each; meaning it is both easy to produce for the presenter, easy to digest for the audience and most importantly it saves everyone from boredom and no one’s PechaKucha talk can drag on for too long!
