Cities for Everyone, THE WEBINAR

Dear Participant,


This bi-weekly webinar is to contribute creating passionate advocates on doing equitable, sustainable, and fun cities, where everyone lives healthier and happier.


Every other Tuesday I invite fascinating people to share interesting transformative actions. It’s 60 minutes, where in the first half the guest presents, and then we have a dialogue considering the questions and comments from participants. I am very grateful to always have hundreds of participants, from over 25 countries, a few over 40! They are from all backgrounds, some work in public sector, others private, NGOs, others in active retirement; we also have elected officials, academics, media, etc.


I’ve been fortunate to have worked in over 350 cities, all continents, and this is a way of giving back, always free, and hopefully always interesting. I’m grateful to the guests, usually friends, who contribute their time and sharing knowledge and experiences. I also thank 8 80 Cities for support in communications.


Please invite others to watch live. Also, share the recordings widely, especially with decision makers, community groups, advocates, students, anyone interested in people and cities. At the end of every session there is a survey, which helps me focus, for future sessions. You can leave comments or e-mail me directly to gp@gpenalosa.ca with suggestions on topics and/or guests.


Kindest regards,
