Curious how these CSH principles for post-secondary teaching/learning/research can be applied in the current and someday post-Covid landscape, to re-engage students in innovative ways that will CRUCIALLY support their health and wellness...

McCormack from "said street closures are akin to construction zones — people avoid them at all costs.” Funny, because most cities are afraid they'll attract *too many* people. Sometimes people are so wrong it's almost beautiful.

We've gotten away with giving humans as little space as possible in cities for a long time. The pandemic is forcing a rethink.

Vehicle lanes move 500 to 1,000 cars an hour; a bicycle lane, upward of 2,000. Public transit will not have the same carrying capacity in the near future, as we continute to social distance. More cars or more bikes? It is our choice.

Step 1: Recognize you have a state of emergency in transportation that will last a while. Step 2: Make cycling easy. Its one of few easy solutions to pull out of our back pocket. It doesn't work for everyone but works for millions of trips a day. There's no reason not to act.

Hate to mention snow, but.... I hope winter cities globally are making plans to keep protected bike lanes networks clear this winter. I don't think we can afford to have 2 transport systems down if this COVID10 thing rears its head again. Ppl are counting on cycling now.

Disappointing. Cycling infrastructure is a huge opportunity to boost public health, cut emissions and mitigate the predicted post-COVID rise in single-occupant cars in our cities. Come on, folks!

Cycling infrastructure is cheap, smart & beautiful. How cheap? The two bridges in this vid cost Copenhagen 7.9M (CAD) to build. My city just built an ugly car underpass for $98M. That would have built 26 bike bridges. No wonder people .

Love seeing the very very smallest among us cycling safely in our city. The freedom!

tackles this reluctance head on. Action 7 - incorporate protected bike lanes + the principles of universal design into a contiguous “everywhere-to-everywhere” network that makes cycling a safe mobility choice for all ages + abilities.

‘Last thing cities need now is more cars. The infrastructure to support them wastes outrageous sums of tax $$, they lower quality of life and devastate the environment; they make life stressful + expensive for people forced to use them.’

Covid19 offers a chance to build better cities. 100 prominent Canadians are behind a 20-point "national declaration" to repair the damage done by a half-century of bad planning and gentrification. An overview by , :

I signed because I believe in the power of city builders to build back better post-COVID-19 and to create the just, inclusive, resilient many of us have been calling for for decades.

People hungry for access to public space is a global phenomena. Ensuring this can be achieved safely in a post lockdown but pre-vaccine world means reclaiming space from cars. was a big part of our inspiration. is resetting; we can too.
