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.

Eastern District Book Club "Arrival City: The Final Migration and out Next World"

Start/End Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 7:00 PM - Wednesday, January 23, 2019 8:00 PM
District: Eastern District

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

Our last Book Club meeting of the year will be postponed to January to accommodate the holiday season. Happy holidays everyone! Thank you for coming out to our Book Club meetings or reading along on your own. This has been a successful pilot year! Please stay tuned for a survey in the new year; we'd love to hear your thoughts about the Club and any suggestions you may have.

On Wednesday, January 23rd the Book Club will meet from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Fox & Feather Pub and Grill to discuss Doug Saunders' book, Arrival City: The Final Migration and Out Next World. All are welcome to attend!

About Arrival City
"From one of Canada's leading journalists comes a major book about how the movement of populations from rural to urban areas on the margins is reshaping our world. These transitional spaces are where the next great economic and cultural boom will be born, or where the great explosion of violence will occur. The difference depends on our ability to notice.

The twenty-first century is going to be remembered for the great, and final, shift of human populations out of rural, agricultural life into cities. The movement engages an unprecedented number of people, perhaps a third of the world's population, and will affect almost everyone in tangible ways. The last human movement of this size and scope, and the changes it will bring to family life, from large agrarian families to small urban ones, will put an end to the major theme of human history: continuous population growth.

Arrival City offers a detailed tour of the key places of the "final migration" and explores the possibilities and pitfalls inherent in the developing new world order. From villages in China, India, Bangladesh and Poland to the international cities of the world, Doug Saunders portrays a diverse group of people as they struggle to make the transition, and in telling the story of their journeys — and the history of their often multi-generational families enmeshed in the struggle of transition — gives an often surprising sense of what factors aid in the creation of a stable, productive community."

In this interactive workshop, participants will discover how to assess risks related to climate change (and other factors) and how to use risk to prioritize assets for lifecycle activities.
