Join John Pucher with CBN volunteers, members and friends of the community for a special one-hour presentation and discussion to hear about premier cycling/walking/transit cities in Europe, how they compare to North American cities, and how these differences are reflected in our quality of life.

Dr. Pucher, a professor at Rutgers University, is internationally recognized and celebrated both for his academic achievements and his engaging approach to presenting his work. His presentation – with indisputable, compelling visuals and a personal passion for cycling – promises to be inspirational and practical.

Since 1983, Pucher has been analyzing transport and land-use policies in Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Currently, his research focuses on walking and bicycling, and in particular, how North American cities could learn from European policies to improve the safety, convenience, and feasibility of these non-motorized modes in Canada and the United States.

Pucher will present his new comparative research of active transportation trends in Germany, the Netherlands and North America and its relation to public health.

This 45-minute presentation will be followed by a question, answer and discussion period with the audience.
