Former Mayor of Bogota to speak at University of Nairobi

The Institute for Transport and Development Policy, Institute for Development Studies (IDS)*, at the University of Nairobi and the Center for Sustainable Urban Development (CSUD)* at Columbia University’s Earth Institute are honored to invite you to a public lecture by Former Mayor of Bogotá, visionary politician and urban strategist, Enrique Peñalosa.

What is a Good City: Public Space, Transport, and Quality of Life
A talk by Enrique Peñalosa

VENUE: Education Building, Main Campus, University of Nairobi

Friday, October 16, 2009

9AM – 12PM

During his tenure as mayor of Bogotá, Mr. Peñalosa was able to successfully transform a city defined as chaotic and hopeless into a city that is now an international model for urban development. Mr. Peñalosa will discuss how he championed this transformation through various efforts, including increased citizen involvement, creating a new and highly successful bus-based transit system, and turning a dilapidated downtown avenue into a dynamic pedestrian public space. Mr. Peñalosa will share the obstacles experienced, many of which are similar to those facing Nairobi, lessons learned during his tenure as Mayor of Bogotá, as well as the critical elements needed in urban development to achieve a higher quality of life.

    So glad to hear this, I wrote my thesis on transportation in Nairobi. Here is a guy (mayor of Bogota) who could be a good example for the mayor of Nairobi. I must mention however that while I was doing my research there, I attended several public meetings among others by Institute of Economic Affairs etc on Transportation planning in Nairobi. I was impressed by attendance and citizen participation. There is really room and desire for proper growth and development in Nairobi.

  • I�m impressed, I must say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that�s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is one thing that not sufficient people are talking intelligently about. I’m very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing relating to this.

  • Movie star and singer Patrick Bruel has been considered one of France’s biggest stars through the ’90s, first
    making their name as a teen idol and leading an excellent
    return to traditional French chanson within the new millennium.
    Bruel was born Patrick Benguigui within Tlemcen, Algeria,
    on, may 14, 1959. The father abandoned the family when Patrick was just a year old, including 1962, after Algeria
    earned its independence, his new mother moved to France, residing inside
    the Paris suburb of Argenteuil. A fine soccer player in the youth,
    Patrick first settled on the idea of becoming a singer after seeing
    Michel Sardou perform in 1975.

    As chance could have it, acting would bring him his first achievement; first-time overseer Alexandre Arcady ran an advertisement seeking a
    fresh man along with a French-Algerian (or “pied-noir” in French slang) accent for his
    movie Le Coup dom Sirocco. Benguigui (as he was still called) responded and
    won the business. The year, he spent a while in New york, where he achieved Gérard Presgurvic, later to be his most important songwriter.

  • La Spezia pregato tanto Padre Pio. Gli ho chiesto di aiutarmi. L invocato sempre e Lui mi ha ascoltato Marco Tartarini la guardia ecologica, non smette di lottare. E di pregare. Lo fa anche la sua compagna che alle 12 puntuale arriva per stargli vicino e aiutarlo a mangiare. Nella stanzetta singola della Divisione di Chirurgia Vascolare dell Sant della Spezia il tempo scorre piano mentre chi entra indossa copri scarpe e mantellina. Come nei film. Del resto anche il sole e Caronte rimangono fuori. Le persiane del lettino numero 23 sono accostate. Basta il filo delicato di luce che arriva dal corridoio e la carezza del piccolo ventilatore poggiato sul comodino vicino alla televisione che gli tiene compagnia. guardo solo i telegiornali, il calciomercato e basta cos spiega Tartarini che li da tre mesi e mezzo. Da quel maledetto 15 aprile scorso quando nel terreno dei genitori, a Str una motozappa maledetta si imbizzarrita e ha iniziato a mangiargli le gambe all del caff L iniziata la sua battaglia.

  • Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

  • Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
