On Wednesday Aug 12th at 2 pm EDT, join The Centre for Active Transportation at Clean Air Partnership and Share the Road Cycling Coalition for the sixth in a series of webinars about rebalancing streets to make them safer for walking and cycling. Participants in this live webinar will hear a conversation about pandemic mobility, how we can move beyond the initial rapid response phase, and how we can incorporate an equity lens into AT planning.
FCM’s COVID-19 Street Rebalancing Guide is meant to be a resource to help communities to temporarily redesign streets to ensure physical and mental health, safety, and well-being. Brian Patterson, Principal & Active Transportation Planning Leader at Urban Systems, will provide an overview to the guide with a focus on communities who are incorporating a long-term strategy for these quick builds.
Nahomi Amberber, a Research Coordinator at Ryerson University, and 2020 epidemiology intern at TCAT, will then provide a snapshot of her research into whether access to active transportation (AT) infrastructure in Canada is equitable, and address how municipalities can incorporate an equity lens to AT planning, in both the short and long-term.
This webinar is presented with the generous support of Urban Systems, in partnership with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).
