Please save the date for TCAT’s fourth annual active transportation conference – the Complete Streets Forum – taking place on April 28 and 29, 2011.
Transportation is more than just a hot conversation topic these days. It is an urgent issue that impacts the prosperity, health, and livability of the entire Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). The challenges facing us are multifaceted, transcend municipal boundaries, and affect all of us, regardless of how we choose to get around – by car, bike, transit, or our own two feet.
To confront these challenges head-on, the theme for this year’s Complete Streets Forum is “Building Alliances”. The Forum brings together a diverse group of professionals, policy-makers, researchers, advocates, and thought-leaders from across the GTHA. It will be of particular interest to those in the transportation, public health, urban planning/design, public policy, and non-profit sectors.
The 2011 Complete Streets Forum will allow us to explore best practices, share ideas and success stories, and showcase research and technical solutions on how to better plan and design complete streets that will embrace and protect cyclists and pedestrians while accommodating all road users, including transit and cars.
We invite everyone who is working to improve our communities, cities, and urban landscape to join us in this important conversation. We all need to get around – we’re all in this together. Please save the date, share the news, and stay tuned for more details!
