Boulder’s daily news website, DailyCamera.com, has included Meeting of the Minds 2011 in today’s edition. They included some nice words from the Mayor’s office and from Jennifer Judge, an MBA student at Colorado University.

[blockquote]”Certainly, events such as this, that focus on innovation, intelligence and creativity, are fabulous for Boulder,” said city spokeswoman Sarah Huntley.

The event will also allow a few lucky CU graduate students pursuing MBAs at the Leeds School of Business to volunteer at the event.

Jennifer Judge said her interest in sustainability prompted her response to an email requesting student volunteers for the summit. A first year student at Leeds, she plans to attend at least one of the 12 sessions scheduled during the summit.

“As a first year, I am really exploring my interest in terms of sustainability, so I hope that what I get out of it is refining where my interest could lie,” Judge said.[/blockquote]

For Walkers, The Last Six Inches are Important

It is no surprise to those of us in the walking advocacy world that making bus stops accessible and linked to neighborhood sidewalks can increase bus ridership and reduce the number of para-transit trips that are called for. This is a logical outcome of thinking about how people make real life choices about how to get around. What this research demonstrates is an amazing win-win-win for walking and transit advocates. It shows how we can shift trips from autos to transit; give more people more independence by making it possible for them to use regular bus service rather than setting up special, scheduled para-transit trips (some of which require appointments to be made at least 24 hours in advance and only for specified purposes); and save money for transit systems over the long run.

Advancing Inclusive City Design in Transportation

The final day of Mobilize Dar es Salaam, June 28th, 2018, began with the plenary, “Advancing Inclusive City Design from Fringe to Mainstream.” On the premise that an equitable city takes into account the needs of everyone— including women, children, elderly people, and people with disabilities—in transport planning, the session explored ideas and dilemmas of designing inclusive transit systems.
