Join the Harvard Graduate School of Design for a lecture by Janette Sadik-Khan, author of Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution.

If you can change the street, you can change the world. Streetfight discusses the transformative power of streets and shows how reclaiming space for people to walk, bike and take public transportation sets cities on a path toward a more sustainable future.

Janette Sadik-Khan is one of the world’s foremost authorities on transportation and urban transformation. She served as New York City’s transportation commissioner from 2007 to 2013 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, overseeing historic changes to the city’s streets—closing Broadway to cars in Times Square, building nearly 400 miles of bike lanes and seven rapid bus lines, launching the largest bike share program in North America and creating more than 60 plazas citywide.
