Free Livability Summit on Transit, Mobility and Public Health 7.14
What do you get when you combine free talks on transit, mobility and public health, thousands of Sunday Streets fans and over a mile of car-free open space?
Systems and processes like urban planning, land use and sustainable mobility may sound scholarly or exclusive. But these concepts are actually the fundamental building blocks of a city. How we move around, live in and access San Francisco’s resources are all connected – from protected bike lanes to new housing developments to safe recreational space, these components help shape the way we use the city we live in.
That’s why you’re invited to learn, think, discuss and dream big about how transportation, housing and public health solutions can become more equitable and sustainable for everyone. Access to free information and education – and bringing these subjects out from the conference rooms and planning offices and out into the streets – helps engage people who may feel left out of the conversation and reach a broader audience.
Everyday San Franciscans are the real experts when it comes to street safety, transit and urban planning in their neighborhoods. 85 percent of Sunday Streets attendees are local residents and the events bring families, youth, seniors and people from all walks of life to envision their city streets as public places for all. The Livability Summit connects the mission of Sunday Streets with the policies we need to get there.
No matter our academic or economic backgrounds, our relationship with San Francisco is affected by the access we have – or don’t – to nearby resources, pedestrian-friendly streets, green spaces, reliable transportation and affordable housing.
Yearly, Sunday Streets creates over 15 miles of car-free streets for health, fun and human connection, serving over 100,000 attendees. As Livable City works to create a San Francisco all residents have access to, see how these concepts actually play out, right on the streets we live, work on, or commute down every day.
