Here and Now

Louisville’s Urban Design Studio continues its Sustainable City series on Tuesday, March 13. The featured speaker is Gil Penalosa.  Penalosa is the former parks commissioner of Bogota, Colombia and is now the executive director of 8-80 Cities, a non-profit that aims to help build cities that are liveable for everyone—whether they’re 8 or 80 years old.

Penalosa spoke with WFPL’s Erica Peterson today on Here and Now about the qualities that make a city liveable, and how his ideas can be adapted to a city like Louisville.

Brad Yost is a producer for WFPL News and Louisville Public Media.
