WTS Toronto Area Chapter - An Evening with Gil Penalosa - 8-80 Cities

05:30 PM - 08:00 PM Eastern Standard Time



Gil Penalosa is the Founder and Chair of the Board of 8-80 Cities. He offers a unique perspective that includes a blend of pragmatism, passion and leadership sought out by many cities and organizations.

As former Commissioner of Parks, Sport and Recreation for the City of Bogotá, Colombia, Gil Penalosa was an integral part of the city's much celebrated transformation of public space and sustainable mobility during the late 1990s. He successfully led the design and development of over 200 parks including Simon Bolivar, a 113-hectare park in the heart of the city. Gil's team also initiated the "new Ciclovia," a program that sees over one million people walk, run, skate, and bike along 121 kilometres of Bogotá's city roads every Sunday, and today is internationally recognized and emulated.
