The world is rapidly urbanizing, with more people than ever before living in and moving to cities. As a result, mobility, traffic congestion, and public safety are primary problems for designers, engineers, urban planners, city leaders, and everyday citizens to solve. Examples from around the world show how smarter street design leads to better health, safety, economic, and environmental outcomes – not only for individuals, but for urban societies as a whole. Come learn about street design and current efforts to implement these types of projects in Providence!

Our Streets Providence is a local alliance of nonprofits, businesses, schools, and individuals advocating for safer streets and more transportation choices in Providence and beyond.

Organized by DO member Elizabeth Leeper. Talk will be given by Liza Burkin of Our Streets Providence. Learn more at Our Streets PVD
