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
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.
