Rosa Shirm

Research and Development Officer




Inspired by her cycle-centric home town of Cambridge, Rosa is passionate about creating urban environments that facilitate and encourage the uptake of active travel. After a period of working as a Sustainability Consultant for the built environment, Rosa pursued her passion for cycle-friendly cities academically, studying Environment and Infrastructure Planning in The Netherlands. Most recently, Rosa has undertaken research and communication roles for Dutch social enterprises working to overcome urban challenges, from a lack of affordable housing to embedding active travel in cities. Rosa lives in Utrecht and spends her free time traversing the city’s infinite cycle lanes.
