From Complete Streets to Thriving Communities: presentation & discussion with urbanist visionary Gil Peñalosa

Gil Peñalosa, MBA, PhDhc, CSP
Founder and Chair, 8 80 Cities
Chair, World Urban Parks
President, Gil Peñalosa & Associates
Gil is passionate about cities for all people. His ‘8 80 Cities’ philosophy is
simple but powerful: if you create a great community for an 8 year old and
an 80 year old, you will create a successful thriving community for all
Gil has been internationally recognized for his influential and inspirational
contributions to the design of cities; in particular, his focus on parks and
streets as great public places, as well as on sustainable mobility: walking,
riding bicycles, using public transit, and new use of cars.
He has advised decision makers in over 300 cities around the world on how
to create healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities for everyone. He
serves as chair of the board of World Urban Parks, and senior advisor to
Children & Nature Network, Vision Zero Network, and America Walks.
Unique networking & professional development opportunity to:
• learn about international innovative, best practices and case studies
• engage in discussion about meaningful policies, such as Tucson’s
Complete Streets Policy development, and
• be inspired to think about how we can enhance our region as a vibrant,
healthy, thriving community for everyone!
