Get ready to be inspired by the possibilities for livable streets in/around Boston!!

Come out and watch the premiere of our first LivableStreets StreetFilm about Park(ing) Day 2008 by George Zisiadis! Then watch the films that inspired our new project, and hear from the filmmaker himself, Clarence Eckerson! See pedestrians in Melbourne, Ciclovia in Bogota, Summer Streets in New York City, and more.

The mission of StreetFilms is to document livable streets best practices throughout the world and show citizens that their streets can be better places for all users. The ultimate goal is to encourage more human- friendly cities and rethink how our streets can better foster walking, bicycling, and transit.

Clarence has nearly one hundred StreetFilms to his credit and has been called “the hardest working man in transportation show biz” for his years of dedication to create videos that are enlightening, entertaining and inspiring.

This event is sponsored by LivableStreets Alliance
