Visions for Dunedin: Designing Streets for People

28 April 2021 6:00pm — 7:00pm

A series of monthly talks presented by the Southern Heritage Trust in partnership with Dunedin Public Libraries.

APRIL’S SPEAKER: Skye Duncan will speak about how her work at NACTO's Global Designing Cities Initiative. She has been working internationally to produce the award-winning Global Street  Design Guide, its recent supplement, Designing Streets for Kids, and providing technical assistance to city governments around the globe to transform their streets. All very relevant for Dunedin and especially the Central City Plan.

For decades, we have designed streets around the globe that prioritize the movement and speeds of private automobiles over the safety, accessibility, and comfort of people. Our streets offer the incredible opportunity to reconsider how we use our most critical network of public open space to serve more functions and more people.

Skye is an urban designer with over 15 years of experience in architecture, urban design, and planning, and was recognized as one of TUMI’s Remarkable Women in Transportation in 2019.
