Metropolis and Mobile Life
Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Metropolis and Mobile Life will explore the relationship between physical mobility and social mobility, and the ways in which our mode of moving in and through cities influences our attitudes toward them. The discussion will investigate how reforming transit infrastructure and changes in travel behaviour can result in new modes of living and new kinds of urban space. It is time to elevate the level of debate beyond light rail vs. subways and explore new ways of thinking about urban mobility.
