MOVE: Imagine 2040


Posted on May 15th, by Move the GTHA in Discussion, Lessons for the GTHA. No Comments

Following the success of last year’s Transportation Expo at Evergreen Brick Works, MOVE: Imagine 2040 puts the focus back on the future of urban infrastructure and transportation in cities.

With an average commute time of 80 minutes and getting worse, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is at a critical moment in transportation and infrastructure planning. Featuring creative solutions to key transportation issues facing the GTHA and cities around the world, the exhibit explores the innovative ideas and technologies needed to connect our communities in efficient and sustainable ways.

At the 2012 MOVE Expo, 10 interdisciplinary teams were asked to develop solutions for local transportation challenges by drawing on international examples of innovation. Their solutions to these 10 challenges are presented at MOVE: Imagine 2040.

By exploring key themes related to energy, land use, infrastructure, health and environment, the teams offer a comprehensive look at how transportation impacts livability in our cities, and explore the innovative solutions–from creative and revolutionary to simple and pragmatic–that will keep people moving in a growing metropolis.

The original MOVE Expo, a partnership between Evergreen and the Institute without Boundaries, set the stage for further efforts to encourage sustainable transportation in the GTHA, including Evergreen CityWorks’ Transportation Lab project and eventually the Move the GTHA collaborative.

Experience the future of transportation in the GTHA through MOVE: Imagine 2040. The exhibit is located in The Kilns at Evergreen Brick Works and is being shown in conjunction with Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future. Both are open during regular Brick Works hours: Monday–Friday 9am–5pm, Saturday 8am–4pm, Sunday and Holidays 10am–4pm.
