Description

Nearly one third of our city land is comprised of public streets. The second session in this four-part series, presented by the University of Toronto's School of Cities, examines the many ways our streets can and should be used – for vehicles, cycling and active transportation, patios, seating areas, pedestrians, plazas and more. What are the opportunities to use streets differently to support public life in the city?

Speakers for this session: 

  • Marianne Hatzopoulou, Associate Professor Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering and Canada Research Chair in Transportation and Air Quality, University of Toronto
  • Jon Johnson, Assistant Professor, Woodsworth College, University of Toronto
  • Elyse Parker, Director, Policy and Innovation, Transportation Services, City of Toronto

Moderated by Matti Siemiatycki, Associate Professor and Interim Director, School of Cities, University of Toronto
