Creating Active Routes to Everyday Destinations 1:00 pm
Creating Active Routes to Everyday Destinations @ Online
May 2 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Creating safe and convenient places for people to incorporate bicycling, walking and other forms of active transportation into daily life improves health. However, many communities lack the infrastructure that supports activity friendly routes that lead to everyday destinations and allows for safe, active transportation for regular trips. This webinar will focus on how we can expand opportunities for active transportation between home, school, work, and other everyday destinations. Ken Rose and Chris Kochtitzky, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will share their organization’s work, both directly and through their more than 60 state, university, and local grant recipients across the country. TJ McCourt, with the City of Raleigh’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources, will describe his City’s efforts to improve walkable connections to everyday destinations for all community members. Following their presentations, the panelists will be available to respond to questions from webinar participants. This webinar is hosted by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.

Future of Mobility: The Impact of Driverless Vehicles on Our Cities 6:00 pm
Future of Mobility: The Impact of Driverless Vehicles on Our Cities @ Evergreen Brick Works
May 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Over the next two decades, advances in vehicle automation are expected to cause a rapid transition from human-driven vehicles to computer-driven ones. Many anticipate this will bring forwards benefits such as improved safety, reduced traffic, and increased mobility. But to effectively harness these benefits, it will be crucial to understand and manage the impacts driverless cars will have on our communities – specifically on energy consumption and land use. It is becoming increasingly clear that automated vehicles offer opportunities for innovation and impact, including the radical transformation of our freight industry, increased innovation in the types of vehicles we create, and the development of new financial instruments and policies. Join Anthony Townsend as he looks at how these advancements will shape a future that is potentially both more weird and more wonderful than we have yet to imagine. Speaker: Anthony Townsend – Author, SMART CITIES: Big Data, Civic Hackers, and the Quest for A New Utopia Moderator: Petrina Gentile – Writer and award-winning automotive journalist, The Globe and Mail This event is hosted by Future Cities Canada.
