World Mental Health Day takes place on 10th October. With 1 in 4 of us suffering from mental health issues in our lives, and many more dealing with stress daily, the day is a timely reminder to change that. It’s a chance for everyone to explore ways to improve their own mental health, as well as to work together to identify solutions that can support more people to deal with or mitigate against poor mental health. This year, BYCS will be hosting a breakfast event to connect mental health, cycling and business at Amsterdam’s international business district, Zuidas.

Ione Avila-Palencia (ISGlobal)
The Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) recently concluded that cycling is the mode of transport associated with the greatest health benefits: better self-perceived general health, better mental health and fewer feelings of loneliness. Ione will share insights from the research they have undertaken.
Laura Hakvoort (Municipality of Amsterdam)
The project ‘De Bewegende Stad’ (The Moving City) from the Municipality of Amsterdam is combining the knowledge and skills around spatial design and exercise behavior into one integral and learning approach for all residents of Amsterdam. Laura will discuss how this can be applied to mental health.
