About the Webinar
In more than forty years of work in cities around the globe, Jaime Lerner has been the driving force behind a host of innovative large-scale urban projects, from the pioneering Bus Rapid Transit system to parks designed to catch runoff and reduce flooding. However, many of Lerner’s contributions show us that changes to a community don’t need to be large-scale and expensive to have a transformative impact—in fact, one block, park, or a single person can have an outsized effect on life in the surrounding city.
On Wednesday, June 29, join a diverse panel of urbanists and community change-makers to see how Lerner’s work and vision continue to affect positive change in cities. Panelists include Mike Lydon, Principle at The Street Plans Collaborative and author of Tactical Urbanism; Erin Barnes, Co-founder and Executive Director of ioby; and Stephen Goldsmith, Director of The Center for the Living City. The webinar will be moderated by The Overhead Wire’s Jeffery Wood.
