Merging the many modes and perspectives of active transportation


 

GAPS + FIXES | Missing Links reception

Thursday, April 25 at 7pm
Rocky Mountain Icehouse

RSVP via Eventbrite

A gathering to discuss the Missing Links initiative – our crowdsourcing project asking Edmontonians to help map upgrades needed on city sidewalks and streets.

It will feature:

  • a presentation of the five examples we’ve developed for inexpensive, straight-forward improvements possible for specific locations in the city
  • traffic engineer, Marcel Huculak, who developed the case studies, will explain his approach and findings
  • Q&A session

This public event invites citizens, community leaders and planners to explore what’s missing in active transportation infrastructure and possible next steps.

It’s free.

 


Past Events

🎥 The World Before Your Feet – Movie Night
February 13 at 7pm
Metro Cinema

Presented in partnership with North West Fest + Metro Cinema

 

The 90-minute film follows Matt Green as he walks 12,000 kilometres of sidewalks, paths and roads in New York City. The journey, over six years, has him walking every street, every block, every pedestrian overpass, park lane and hiking trail in the city. From the heart of Harlem to the marshes of Staten Island, Matt’s walk is a pursuit of anything that catches his eye, be it a national landmark or a humble manhole cover.
