Livable City announces the return of our first ever live online event where you can ask your questions around how we all can create the safe places that we need our cities and towns to be amidst the global pandemic and social unrest.
There’s a lot of discussion and a diverse set of actions taken attempting to remedy the lack of safe space to be outside in our cities and towns. But what do we mean when we say safe space. What is safe space? And who are these spaces for?
COVID-19 was originally thought to be the “great equalizer” but the data has shown quite the opposite. What’s going on here and what can and should be done to change this?We’ll try and get through as many questions as possible working them into our panel-style conversation.
We have three amazing people with a diverse set of experience in shaping, designing and creating these places with strong emphasis on human connection and diversity:
Jennifer Keesmaat: former Toronto Chief City Planner, mayoral candidate and urban planner.
Doug Gordon: previous podcast guest, all around great guy and co-host of The War on Cars podcast.
Erica Woods: global HR executive at Canonical with a heavy emphasis on culture and diversity, employee relations, recruiting, and delivery of people-oriented processes and solutions.
