Enrique Peñalosa evening

Viewing of speech given by Enrique Penalosa at the International Transport Forum in January, 2011.

Enrique Peñalosa is one of the great urban thinkers of our time. During his three year term (1997–2000) as Mayor of Bogotá, Colombia, Peñalosa implemented numerous radical improvements to the city and its citizens' quality of life. He helped transform Bogotá's attitude from one of negative hopelessness to one of pride and hope, developing a model for urban improvement based on the equal rights of all people to transportation, education, and public spaces.

A discussion will follow. Sponsored by the Carrboro Transportation Advisory Board, the UNC dept. of City and Regional Planning, and the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition. A discussion wil follow the speech.

Light refreshments will be served prior to the video.



Thursday, October 27, 2011 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
