The 2014 Complete Streets Forum Issues Call for Proposals

The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) a project of the registered charity Clean Air Partnership, invites you to submit a proposal for the 2014 Complete Streets Forum, taking place in downtown Toronto on Monday October 6, 2014.
 
This is TCAT’s 7th annual active transportation conference. The Complete Streets Forum is an influential event that brings together hundreds of professionals, decision-makers and community members from the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area and beyond. Each year, exit surveys show a high satisfaction rate and interest in attending future events. The Forum provides a unique opportunity to share research, best practices, and creative solutions for designing and implementing Complete Streets - streets that are safe, accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

It’s an exciting time for Complete Streets in Canada with more municipalities each year adopting Complete Streets policies, developing guidelines and incorporating a new approach to transportation that embraces a more holistic approach to how we build our cities. Yet we know much more needs to be done to continue to build momentum for the positive direction we're on. In light of this, our overall conference theme is “Building Momentum for Complete Streets.”

Call for Proposals: Present at the 2014 Complete Streets Forum

We are looking for speakers to share their insight and expertise at the 2014 Forum on the following themes: 1) Why Complete Streets, 2) Making the Case for Complete Streets, 3) Complete Streets How-To, and 4) New Approaches to Community Engagement. We encourage evidence-based proposals from the wide spectrum of sectors working on these issues including planners, engineers, public health professionals, urban designers, architects, accessibility and mobility experts, public transit professionals, advocates, and more.
