The Oxford Transport Studies Unit's third DePICT stakeholder meeting, and inaugural meeting in Brazil, took place on 7 June 2017 at the Faculty of Public Health, University of São Paulo (USP).

This was a joint stakeholder meeting alongside DePICT co-investigators from USP. Each team provided a presentation on their respective completed and upcoming DePICT research, followed by interactive discussion. The morning session included a gathering of politicians, ministers, and transport policy makers, and the afternoon session a number of São Paulo cycling and active transport activists. Over coffee and pão de queijo the participants offered an extensive list of community-led walking and cycling initiatives to explore, and expressed their interest in the networking potential of the DePICT project.
