Pedestrian trauma, attacks in civic spaces, road rage… As our cities become more global and urban populations increase, how do we better share our public spaces and design for safety? Have our safety needs really changed, and if so, what do we most immediately need to be addressing? Does our need for public safety override concerns about decreased privacy? What are the innovative ideas leading the endeavour to keep our cities open to everyone?
Join this panel discussion engaging leading thinkers and doers, with speakers including Orlando Harrison, Zoe Condliffe and Maree Grenfell.
