Call for ideas on movement

We're seeking new approaches to movement and connectivity in Calgary.  We’re hoping to break down barriers that preclude access for some. We’re looking for ideas that consider mobility as a quality of life choice and something connected to not only where we live, but how.

Which leads us to movement. What relationships exist between community connection and movement from place to place? Can our children move freely and we feel that they are safe? How can a person with cognitive challenge get to a transit stop on their own? How do we begin to understand the pre-railway history of this landscape?  What physical barriers might we shed? can the nature and scale of a public transit system challenge assumptions of distance and how people gather? 

As technology advances continue to transform mobility, considerations of sustainable, economic, and accessible options for urban living are something not to be considered lightly. Public infrastructure and the systems that we create to produce movement within the urban realm are a design responsibility of human concern.
