StreetTalks are LivableStreets’ discussion series. They are forums for learning, a time to discuss important issues and a way for us to gain feedback from the public. Explore our upcoming and recent events below.
12 Annual StreetTalk 10-in-1
After a three year hiatus, 10-in-1 LivableStreets' annual StreetTalk is back in person and we can't wait to see you! Returning to the Old South Meeting House on Thursday, December 8th, we will have ten speakers on ten different topics in one location to talk about issues regarding transit advocacy, climate justice, protecting our greenways, equitable housing + land use policies, and more! Each speaker will present for seven minutes — stay tuned for more information about speakers and topics.
The past couple of years have been rife with uncertainty, but there is one thing you can always count on - StreetTalks!
We brought back the most popular Livable Streets event - the StreetTalk 10-in-1 - now in a virtual format. The event featured 10 speakers from around the region and the country in a lightning round of presentations covering a wide range of topics, including transforming housing policy, the future of the MBTA and expanding the meaning of “safe” on our streets.
Where Do We Go From Here: Livable Streets, Vibrant Communities, and the Future of Transportation
2020 wasn’t the year anyone expected. As we look toward 2021, many are asking “where do we go from here?”.
When LivableStreets was founded 15 years ago we set a bold vision for urban streets -- and it’s time to do that again. From expanding transit access, to transforming housing policy, we held a conversation with national leaders about what we need to do in the next 15 years in transportation to combat climate change, tackle systemic inequity, and make our streets work for everyone.

In these uncertain times, one thing is certain - transportation is more important than ever.
In partnership with the WGBH Forum Network, LivableStreets hosted a four-part virtual StreetTalk series focused on our streets, our transportation system, and the future of mobility.
Each StreetTalk featured a discussion with guest speakers followed by ample time for Q&A with the audience. Audience members had the opportunity to submit questions in advance, and there were also opportunities to ask questions during the event.
At our 9th Annual StreetTalk 10-in-1, we invited 10 innovative transportation and community thinkers to take the stage and share their big ideas. Attendees enjoyed 10 rapid-fire "TED"-style talks, with plenty of inspiration to be had - our annual StreeTalk 10-in-1 remains one of our most popular events of the year!
