Greenways hosts noted Canadian urbanist in Monday forum

Design thinking and the city will be the focus of a Queen Anne Greenways forum with Canadian urban scientist Robin Mazumder on Monday night at the Queen Anne Community Center (1901 1st Ave. W.). 

A doctoral candidate at the University of Waterloo in cognitive neuroscience, Mazumder’s research examines how people experience cities, through the use of sophisticated wearable technology and immersive virtual reality. Monday’s discussion will touch on those topics, in addition to how to lead change in communities, and how Seattle can create a healthy, sustainable, equitable, and inclusive city. Mazumder also appeared on the BBC World Service's technology-centered radio program "Click," earlier this week, to discuss his research (starting at the 13:30 mark). 

The discussion starts at 6:30 p.m. in Room 3, and will be moderated by Mark Ostrow. A question-and-answer session will follow.
