On Wednesday, April 13th Green Action Centre will welcome Strong Towns’ Charles Marohn to Winnipeg. Registration will begin soon for The Confessions Tour: Transportation for a Strong Town. Tickets will be available from greenactioncentre.ca.
Like many cities in Canada, Winnipeg has gone through a period of record growth, and yet our financial position has never been worse. Winnipeg also has the highest rate of injury and death of vulnerable road users in Canada. What did we get wrong, and what can we do now, and into the future, to ensure we have a successful transportation system that contributes to the quality of life of all residents?
The lessons Charles shares will apply to those in Winnipeg as well as municipalities across the province. Whether you are a planner, developer, transportation engineer, municipal leader or community advocate, you will want to attend this important event.
Following Charles’ keynote, attendees will be divided into groups to participate in a series of breakout sessions to bring the high-level concepts to the local reality around us. Be part of the transportation transformation in your town!
