San Mateo hosts Taste and Talk speaker series
January 04, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Draper University and the San Mateo Public Works Department kicks off its “Taste and Talk” speaker series 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9.

TEDx speaker, Jeffrey Tumlin, principal with Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, will be featured in the first of four public forums to provide the San Mateo community with an opportunity to share its thoughts and ideas on sustainable transportation.   

Tumlin brings his TEDx lecture, “Sex, Neuroscience and the City,” to San Mateo to explore how cities across the country are making the most efficient use of limited transportation resources while addressing job creation, public health and establishing equity and happiness goals. His concepts aim to help audiences better understand the broader movement toward sustainable communities. He also encourages everyday citizens to collaborate with elected officials to define and implement the values that are most reflective of a community’s quality of life, social equity and ecological goals, according to a city press release.

In addition to the “Taste and Talk” speaker series, public workshops will be scheduled throughout 2014. Speakers for the first quarter of 2014 “Taste and Talk” speaker series are scheduled through April. The series will be held in downtown San Mateo at either Draper University or the San Mateo Main Library. Upcoming presentations, in addition to the Jan. 9 event, include: Thursday, Feb. 6 — The Key to Complete Streets: How to Unlock its Powers, Wednesday, March 5 — Greening the Street Involves More Than New Trees and Thursday, April 10 — Completing the Transportation Network by Seeing the Bigger Picture. 

The events are free, but space is limited. Please visit www.sustainablestreetssanmateo.com to register or for more information about the “Taste and Talk” Speaker Series and the Sustainable Streets Plan.
