Event description

Description

Kia ora, Women in Urbanism Auckland!

We're extremely excited to announce our next event at the refurbished Ellen Melville Centre; a conversation with Jennifer Keesmaat, departing-Chief Planner for the City of Toronto.

Jennifer is a fearless champion for bike lanes, pedestrian-friendly streets, and improved transit. She is also known for being outspoken about issues she felt were in Toronto's long-term interest, which she said frequently bumps up against short-term politics.

Please email womeninurbanismnz@gmail.com if you have any special mobility requirements.

This event is supported by the Ellen Melville Centre, Auckland Council.

"Over the past decade Jennifer has been repeatedly recognised by the Canadian Institute of Planners, OPPI, the Design Exchange, + EDRA for her innovative work in Canadian municipalities. Jennifer is a Registered Professional Planner (RPP) with the Canadian Institute of Planners, and qualified to give evidence at the OMB, with an expertise in Urban Design. She is also the founder of Project Walk, which premiered its first short film in 2011, as an official selection at the TIFF. In 2012 Jennifer debuted her first TED talk, Walk to School and in 2013 she delivered her second, Own Your City."
