Walking Around the World
The June 8th presentation by Dr. Rodney Tolley and Bronwen Thornton is now available on video:
Their talk was the third “Shifting Gears” lecture this last spring.
The obesity epidemic, congestion, pollution, peak oil and climate change are just five of the imperatives that demand we walk more — and walk more often. Yet the barriers to walking have intensified in recent years. This presentation will show how streets around the world are being opened up again to people on foot, with spectacular benefits for our personal health, and the health of our cities, our communities and our children.
These lectures were sponsored by the Bombardier Foundation and the Active Transport Lab at the University of British Columbia and BC Recreation and Parks Association.
