Open Talent "Bicycle urbanism by design"

Next Monday February 5th, at 7:00 pm, the Open Talent "Bicycle Urbanism by Design" will take place at the Tech Talent Center (c / Badajoz 73, Barcelona). This Open Talent will be hosted by Mikael Colville-Andersen, general director of Copenhagenize Design Company and some of the most prestigious experts in urban planning and urban cycling.

The bicycle as the most important tool in our transport toolbox for rebuilding our livable cities and nations.

Mikael Colville-Andersen will talk about his pioneering philosophies about simplifying urban planning and urban cycling and how cities and towns should be designed instead of engineered. This philosophies combine anthropology and sociology to develop livable cities with a skeptical point of view about the weight we place on traffic engineering.
