About this webinar

How long do you (pre-COVID) spend driving to work, school, grocery stores, shops, restaurants, doctors, hair salons, etc.? The impact of all of those cars, roads, parking lots and more is devastating to a sustainable planet, sustainable cities and to the health, safety and welfare of populations. Add in the impact of a pandemic and the growing awareness of ongoing social inequity and the idea of living in a community where the majority of your needs can be met withing a 15 minute walk or bicycle ride is generating a great deal of awareness right now. Join us as we explore what are the benefits and challenges to creating a Sustainable City that can lead to healthier, safer and more mindful communities.
