Community planning and health: street, neighborhood, metropolis
Lecture presented online on January 27, 2021
This discussion is a follow-up to a special edition held last June: Movement and Distancing: Are Montreal Streets in Transition? Guests looked at the impact of the pandemic on Montreal streets and the first measures put in place by the city of Montreal.
What’s happened since then? Have those decisions, made under urgent circumstances, given rise to a more long-term vision? How will the crisis influence urban planning in the future? Will the health of citizens now be a central concern in decision making?
The presentation in French was followed by a discussion period in French and English with the public.
