Active in Action: New Principles for a Sustainable World


April 18, 2010
by Canadian Architect

How do we take the principles of active living, combine them with active transportation and expand our ideas and concepts to achieve a fully sustainable world? An ambitious question – and one that Dan Burden takes on in a new and fresh presentation on Wednesday, April 21 at 7:00pm at SFU Harbour Centre, located at 515 West Hastings Street in Vancouver.

 

Burden is an internationally recognized authority on active transportation, livability and sustainability, with 38 years of experience. He will illustrate implementation strategies for all sizes of communities, from those wanting to remain rural in character to those that are highly urban, with examples from Bogotá to Abu Dhabi. More about Dan Burden can be found at www.walkable.org/index.html.

 

Admission is free. As seating is limited, reservations are required. Reserve at www.sfu.ca/reserve

This event is sponsored by the BC Recreation and Parks Association, Bombardier Foundation and the Active Transport Lab at the University of British Columbia and SFU City Program.
