What does it take to build a 15-minute city? Join local and global leaders to discuss how we can make cities more accessible & equitable.

About this Event
The U.N. Perspective Series are free events aiming to build community and convene global and local perspectives on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Presented by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB) and Impact Hub Boston, each U.N. Perspective Series focuses on a specific SDG and opens dialogue between global experts, local leaders, and the Greater Boston community.

In January we will focus on SDG 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities by exploring the concept of the 15-minute city. Together we will understand what is being done to make sure that all city residents have access to essential services, transportation, and green space within a 15-minute walk or bike ride.

Speakers include…

Julia Wallerce: Boston Program Manager, Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP)

Dr. Karilyn Crockett: Chief of Equity at the City of Boston and Author of “People before Highways
