Hamil­ton Speaker Series

September 5, 2013

Story

Entro Commu­ni­ca­tions has part­nered with the Hamil­ton Cham­ber of Commerce for a speaker series devoted to urban renewal. Momen­tum for change has been grow­ing in Hamil­ton, and this speaker series has been seen as a cata­lyst for discus­sion and inno­va­tion, bring­ing thought lead­ers in the area of archi­tec­ture, urban design, and commu­nity engage­ment. Our first two series touched on the power of qual­ity urban design in build­ing sustain­able cities of the future, and the signif­i­cance of build­ing cultural desti­na­tions. Our third series is sched­uled for Septem­ber 26, with a focus on tran­sit.

Our moder­a­tor is Christo­pher Hume from the Toronto Star and our panelists will include :

  • Dr. Alex Bitter­man, Asso­ciate Profes­sor of Archi­tec­ture, Rochester Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy
  • Mary Proc, Vice Pres­i­dent of Customer Service, GO Tran­sit
  • Andrew Kuzyk, Found­ing Part­ner, Entro Commu­ni­ca­tions
  • Don Hull, Direc­tor of Trans­porta­tion, City of Hamil­ton

OUR THEME

Modern public tran­sit is the foun­da­tion of sustain­able mobil­ity. Inte­grated tran­sit systems enable cities to accom­mo­date more people while reduc­ing road conges­tion and air pollu­tion. It’s the most effec­tive way to connect all citi­zens to local and regional economic and lifestyle oppor­tu­ni­ties. Yet many North Amer­i­can cities — includ­ing Hamil­ton — strug­gle to increase rider­ship. Christo­pher and guests will explore inno­v­a­tive tech­niques to change mobil­ity behav­iours and boost the use of local and regional public tran­sit. This is a conver­sa­tion that speaks to city build­ing prin­ci­ples that truly matter: qual­ity of life, pros­per­ity and equity.
