Lessons from Bogotá: Reclaiming Public Space for Public Health
What does it take for a city of 8 million people to get 1.5 million of them outdoors and physically active on a Sunday?
According to Guillermo Peñalosa, the former Parks Commissioner of Bogotá, Colombia, all it takes is the political and community will to provide people with the necessary public space. And, he should know: he has done it.
Please join Transportation Alternatives, Harlem Community Development Corporation, Project for Public Spaces and the NYC Food & Fitness Partnership for an evening presentation and discussion with Guillermo Peñalosa about Ciclovía and car-free spaces as a means to improving public health and social equity.
