CoMotion webinar: Rethinking the Street

Cities around the world are using the current crisis as an opportunity to reimagine the street -- the most basic building block of any city. Join us as we explore different approaches to opening urban streets to people, both during and after the pandemic.

Rethinking the Street brings together some of the sharpest global minds actively working to recreate our roads for a better tomorrow. Philippe Chiambaretta, head of Paris-based PCA Architects and in charge of the brilliant program to reimagine the iconic Champs-Élysées; Pierfrancesco Maran, Deputy Mayor of Milan, where already 35 km of roads are being transformed to promote active mobility and to limit car use as the city emerges from lockdown; Michael Schneider, whose organization Streets for All is leading the charge for open streets in Los Angeles; and Bronwen Thornton, CEO of the UK’s Walk21, an international NGO dedicated to ensuring the right to walk the world over.

The webinar takes place on 13 May at 19:00 CEST. You can find out more and register here.
