District: Eastern District

Fox & Feather Pub and Grill
283 Elgin Street
Ottawa, Ontario

On Wednesday, August 22th the Book Club will meet from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Fox & Feather Pub and Grill to discuss Gord Hume's new book, Getting Cities Right: A Blueprint for Creating a Better Future or our Cities. All are welcome to attend!

See below for details on how to purchase the book.

About Getting Cities Right
“There are two great tectonic shifts happening in government right now - first, a very different and difficult political climate; and second, a vast technology revolution that is changing jobs, business, lives and municipalities.

Getting Cities Right offers a bold and intrepid look at the current political environment globally, and how that impacts local governments. And, it shares a thoughtful and challenging analysis of the new technology that is changing how we live and work - and how municipalities will do business.

Getting Cities Right is about the future of local government in the face of these challenges. It is about creating modern urban centres that will flourish by embracing innovation, technology, and a more global perspective.

From Artificial Intelligence, to the Internet of Things, to Sentient Tools, to Robots and Bots, this exciting new book offers reader[s] a heady picture of the changes that are coming. These opportunities are contrasted against the stark reality [of] how city halls and municipalities have been operated and managed in the past, and against global political uncertainties that loom large in the background."

About Gord Hume
“Gord Hume is recognized as one of Canada's leading voices on municipal government, sustainable urban development, cultural planning, and creative cities. He is a very popular public speaker, an advisor to civic governments and a respected and often provocative author. He is an articulate and thoughtful commentator on civic government and community issues..."

The Principles of Traffic and Transportation - 20 Week Evening Lecture Series

Start/End Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 12:00 AM - Wednesday, January 30, 2019 12:00 AM
District: Ontario

The seminars will start September 12th and continue until February 2019 (total 20). The seminars will take place every Wednesday between 5:30 - 7:00pm at the Markham Civic Centre located at 101 Town Centre Blvd. Markham Ontario.

 

Introduction
The transportation system is being asked to play a greater role in society these days as we strive to move people, fuel the economy, be more energy efficient, and address the role of the automobile in climate change.

These are broad themes that will affect the transportation profession for years to come, however at the 'street level' there is still the day-today of designing, operating, evaluating and improving the local transportation system in our cities and towns.

Whether you are new to the transportation industry, are looking to refresh your knowledge on transportation principles, or if you have taken on a new responsibility or are working in a ‘niche area’ and wish to broaden your knowledge, PTRC’s 20 week evening lecture series offers a cost-effective and time-inexpensive training course that will benefit both the participating employee and their employer.

This evening seminar program has been running in Europe for over fifteen years. After the success of the program in Toronto from 2011 - 2014, PTRC will again be running the series from September 2018 to February 2019.

Structure
The series will consist of 20 lectures delivered by local experienced transportation practitioners from consultancies, local authorities and governments, who are experts in their
field. Presenters will be drawn from consulting firms, local agencies, academia and other government bodies. Each seminar will cover a specific topic and the content has been devised as far as possible to cover the typical principles of a transportation scheme.

Tutors will be encouraged to design interactive sessions to accompany their talk and there will be plenty of time for discussion and questions, and may also open up opportunities for networking.
