Feb 4th Friday/Films of Vision and Hope – Innovative Urban Solutions from Curitiba Brazil

This month we’re delighted to bring back one of our all time favorite Films of Vision and Hope. A Convenient Truth shows how creative and forward-looking urban leaders in Curitiba, Brazil transformed their city, fashioning innovative solutions from major problems. And the work in Curitiba continues to influence urban planners around the world. It’s a good time to take a new look at the film, because one of the major innovations it highlights is bus rapid transit (BRT),  which is now a hot topic on the Peninsula. Learn what Curtiba did to make a difference, including why dedicated BRT buses and lanes are so important for increasing ridership and better serving the community. We’ll also hear from folks active in pushing for BRT locally.

Don’t miss it!
