We are delighted to announce IURD's Spring 2014 series: *Transit & Cities:
Creating Sustainable Urban Futures*, being held at UC Berkeley. View them
online at the Transit & Cities

Transit is vital to the sustainability of cities-environmentally,
economically, socially. Be a part of a growing movement that places transit,
in its many shapes and forms, front and center in the campaign to create
sustainable urban futures.
The first event of our Spring series is:
*Monday, February 10, 6-8pm*
*Evening Lecture and Discussion on: "Places for People & Transit"*
"From Jane Jacobs to Livable Cities"
Presentation by Jan Gehl, Jan Gehl and Associates, Copenhagen
Discussant: Neil Hrushowy, City of San Francisco Planning Department
Fifty years of Public Life research leading gradually to implementation of
people-oriented planning strategies in cities across the world: Copenhagen,
Melbourne, London, New York and Moscow, among others. The Livable cities of
the 21st Century are characterized by a strong focus on sustainable modes
of transport supported by a good public realm. Care for people and the
public realm are seen as an important key for creating lively, safe,
sustainable and healthy cities.
