Spacing is pleased to co-sponsor “Right to Walk TO: Justice, equity, and the Toronto walking experience,” a panel discussion organized by Walk Toronto that explores walking – the love of it, our need for it, and its meaning – through a justice and equity lens. This event is a love letter to walking, as well as a critical look at the walking experience our city creates, from different perspectives.
The speaker panel consists of:
- Philip Cote, Young Spiritual Elder, Indigenous Artist, Activist, Educator, Historian, and Traditional Wisdom Keeper
- Nadia Halim, Longtime Toronto Walker and Walk Organizer, Host of the Podcast The Opposite of Lonely
- Daniella Levy-Pinto, Pedestrian Safety and Accessibility Activist
The format is brief presentations by the speakers followed by a moderated panel discussion and Q&A from the audience. We are delighted to have engaged as our moderator Zahra Ebrahim, Urbanist, Professor, and Human-centred Designer.
