Free Lecture - Barcelona’s Bold Move: Reclaiming Streets for People

UBC Robson Square Theatre, 800 Robson Street

Free Lecture

Like many prominent cities, Barcelona has ambitious plans to move away from car hegemony. The new mobility plan will reduce traffic by 21% and restrict vehicles to a number of big roads. This will drastically reduce pollution, and free up nearly 60% of streets currently used by cars by turning them into spaces for people.

Join Salvador Rueda as he describes this bold plan to create superilles (superblocks) to “fill the city with life".
