As part of the Metcalf Foundation’s Environment Program’s focus on mobility and sustainability, they are presenting what promises to be an informative and lively event on December 1 at the Isabel Bader Theatre, featuring two visionary city builders: Janette Sadik-Khan and Jennifer Keesmaat.
The evening begins with a networking reception at 6 p.m., followed by a keynote presentation by Janette Sadik-Khan at 6:30 p.m. The title of Janette’s talk is Changing Lanes: Blueprints for a New Road Order. Drawing on her experience as New York City’s Transportation Commissioner and more recently as a Principal at Bloomberg Associates, Janette’s keynote will explore how we can reimagine and redesign our cities around people.
In her role as NYC's Transportation Commissioner, Janette oversaw the pedestrianization of Times Square (pictured below), launched NYC’s bike share Citibike program, added 400-plus miles of bike lanes, and installed 60 public plazas across the city. Impressive!
Following her keynote, Janette will be joined on stage by Jennifer Keesmaat, Chief Planner for the City of Toronto, for a fireside chat on rethinking mobility and public spaces.
