Please join Paths for People for an evening with Janette Sadik-Khan as she inspires us with her work and sparks the imagination for what Edmonton could be: a safe, comfortable, beautiful city focused on the human scale. Saturday, April 14, 6:30pm-9pm Metro Cinema (8712 109 St)
The former Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Transportation and the author of Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, Janette Sadik-Khan is one of the leading voices in urban transportation policy. She led the charge in revitalizing New York’s streets with the building of nearly 400 miles of bike lanes and more than 60 pedestrian plazas. She brought in Citi Bike – a bike share network – to New York, which is currently the largest bike share system in North America with 12,000 bikes and more than 22 million trips taken.
From mass transit to economic revitalization through the creation of safe cycling and pedestrian-centered infrastructure, her work has transformed New York.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets through Eventbrite. A free copy of Streetfight will be given to the first 50 guests. (Note: Tickets not claimed by 6:45pm will be made available to the general public.)
Streetfight is available in advance at Tix on the Square, BikeWorks and Homestead. Copies will also be available at the event.
