Active Transportation Summit – May 16th

A message from Ecology Ottawa:

Ottawa is at a watershed moment for progress on walking, cycling and transit. The City of Ottawa’s new policy on “complete streets” for all users, the advent of a transformative Light Rail Transit project, and substantial infrastructure investments from the provincial and federal governments make this a key moment to assess an outlines for implementing a safe, healthy and environmentally responsible streetscape at scale.

Our event will focus on the City of Ottawa’s progress on cycling and pedestrian issues, identify strategic opportunities and build support for safer and healthier streets. More specifically, it will include:

  • A panel discussion on the future of Ottawa’s streets
  • Representation from the organizations and community associations working to advance sustainable transportation in Ottawa
  • Presentation of the new Ecology Ottawa report, “Seizing the moment for safe and healthy streets”
  • And more!

We would be honoured if you could join us at the Active Transportation Summit on Wednesday May 16, 2018 from 5pm-8pm at Christ Church Cathedral. Registration is now open, and you can register at….
