They are your front door mat, they are how you express yourself to the world. Tired uninteresting streets dominated by cars will turn away visitors, investors and day to day users of your town or city, and all too often they won’t come back. What is your town doing about this?
We make streets all over the world and it’s the best job ever! Making spaces where people can play, shop, gather, drink, eat, and walk is a real privilege.
But good streets are easier to make than you think. We can walk through the process together for a great outcome.
As a Councillor and Deputy Mayor of the Sunshine Coast Council, I have had a long association with Steven Burgess and his work on revitalising urban places through better movement strategies.
I have attended Steven’s Street Design Master Classes and his ability to explain the broad community benefits of recreating streets and centres for people, not cars is genuinely unique.
As an elected representative I left with a new perspective and armed with much more knowledge on how to improve the circumstances for my community.
I highly recommend Steven as an informative, thought-provoking and inspirational speaker.
“In speaking to the function of streets and their preeminent functions in social engagement as well as handling traffic, Steven distils the essence of his narrative to a clear irrefutable case, whilst simultaneously being able to back-up his argument with technical data.”
