Screening: Streetfilms at the Lab
Sunday, October 9, 2011, 6–8 pm
Above: Showing how cities around the world are taking back their streets for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders.
Streetfilms produces short films that show how smarter transportation design and policy can create better places to live and work. The nearly 400 videos made by Streetfilms have been viewed more than four million times online and have inspired action and behavioral change worldwide. But they do not bring about change alone. Join us for a night of Streetfilms, followed by a discussion with Elizabeth Press, Streetfilms producer; Caroline Samponaro, director of bicycle advocacy at Transportation Alternatives; and Mike Lydon, principal of the Street Plans Collaborative. The discussion will focus on how these groups are working together to make New York City a safer, more sustainable, and healthier place to live.
