Tactical Urbanism: Equity, Engagement, and the Opportunities and Challenges of COVID-19
February 5, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST$49
When: Thursday, March 4, 2021 — 2:00 – 3:30 PM ET
This webinar was developed by the ITE Pedestrian and Bicycle Standing Committee.
The pandemic has allowed for a lot of experimentation with Open Streets, “streatery” parklets, and other strategies. Reduced traffic volumes allowed for repurposing of the right-of-way to improve safety and mobility of residents, as well as helping local restaurants and other businesses survive these difficult times. Concurrently, there has been a growing conversation about equity and public engagement, particularly in regards to the implementation of tactical urbanism.
This webinar will discuss that balance of expanding opportunities for tactical urbanism with the responsibility to do so equitably and to ensure that these strategies are truly providing the benefits that our communities need.
A series of presentations will show tactical urbanism initiatives throughout the country, in cities small and large. These presentations will be followed by an extended roundtable discussion with the panelists sharing their thoughts on the intersection of tactical urbanism with equity and engagement, as well as taking questions from the attendees.
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:
- Learn about the history and development of tactical urbanism
- Learn about specific strategies which can be utilized
- Understand best practices in tactical urbanism
- Learn context-sensitive strategies for a variety of settings
- Reflect on potential harm to communities from past projects that did not center equity
- Develop skills and equip individuals with innovative ideas for inclusive engagement
