Lunch Time Lecture - Monday, March 5

Join us on Monday, March 5 for a Lunch Time Lecture, Creating Safe and Compelling Environments: Is it Possible? with Steve Woolrich of Rethink Urban.

Community safety and crime reduction continues to be a high priority in cities across North America and there has been a tendency to lean towards fortifying properties in many designs. Are these the kind of cities we want and are they compelling? As community stewards can we explore the possibility of creating stylish, exciting, safe, supportive and welcoming environments?

Over the past 25 years Steve Woolrich has established a reputation for excellence in policing, corrections and corporate security and is the principle of Rethink Urban Inc.

This lunch time lecture series explores city-making in the 21st century. What does Victoria look like in 30 to 40 years? How do we get there? Lunch Time Lectures at City Hall will provide doses of inspiration from near and far and will examine how, together, city hall, residents and businesses can seize the opportunities and challenges of being a leading-edge city in the 21st century.

All lectures run from noon to 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall and are webcast live and archived.
