Tonight! #Streetfight for a #liveable City

She is finally here. Janette Sadik-Kahn New York City’s former Dept of Transportation Commissioner is in Ottawa to talk about creating shared, liveable urban space.

Tonight’s event demonstrates that residents are well ahead of City Hall in terms of  recognizing the need for liveability and vision in designing our city. This talk had to be moved to a larger venue due to interest and at latest count 2000 people are registered.  The free event at Landsdowne’s Aberdeen Pavillion will cover the importance of  providing more room for people, bikes and buses.

The talk is based on Sadik-Kahn’s vast experience, her recent observations and her co-authored book Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution. Note the proceeds of copies of her book on sale at the event will benefit Ecology Ottawa who spearheaded tonight’s talk with various other community groups.

Can’t make the talk or want a taster?  Here is Sadik-Kahn’s TedTalk on YouTube (15mins).
