For our fourth City Imagines panel, Radicalized author Cory Doctorow speaks with James Wilt, author of Do Androids Dream of Electric Cars? Public Transit in the Age of Google, Uber, and Elon Musk.

For North American cities built around cars, public transportation was already in crisis. So what happens when a tech giant enters the transit ecosystem? Join us for this wide-ranging discussion about how transportation affects climate change, inequality, accessibility, safety, labour issues, and information privacy. What should public transit look like in a green and equitable city? And what's needed for citizens to exert power over how cities are built and for whom?

 

For the second event in the 2020 City Imagines series, Jennifer Keesmaat interviews Dr. Karen K. Lee about Fit Cities: My Quest to Improve the World’s Health and Wellness–Including Yours.
Working with civic leaders, city planners, and architects, Dr. Karen K. Lee has been a pioneer in addressing today's leading health problems, such as obesity, heart disease, strokes, cancers, and diabetes. Fit Cities is a riveting memoir of that work–the story of how Dr. Lee and her many teams of brilliant collaborators uncovered, and set about eradicating, the causes of a pandemic of unhealthy living.
