Lunch Keynote Speaker: Gil Penalosa 

Gil is Founder and Chair of the Board of 8 80 Cities. Gil also runs his own international consulting firm, Gil Penalosa & Associates, and is an accomplished presenter and inspirational speaker. Because of Gil's unique blend of pragmatism and passion, his leadership and advice is sought out by many cities and organizations. Over the past eight years, Gil has worked in over 180 different cities across six continents.

As former Commissioner of Parks, Sport and Recreation for the City of Bogotá, Colombia, Gil was an integral part of the city's much celebrated transformation of public space and sustainable mobility during the late 1990s. Gil successfully led the design and development of over 200 parks including Simon Bolivar, a 113-hectare park in the heart of the city. Gil's team also initiated the "new Ciclovia," a program that sees over one million people walk, run, skate, and bike along 121 kilometres of Bogotá’s city roads every Sunday, and today is internationally recognized and emulated.

Gil also works as Urban Expert on Mobility and Citizen Engagement for the renowned Danish firm Gehl Architects. He serves on the Board of Directors of City Parks Alliance, USA, and is a Senior Advisor to StreetFilms in NYC, American Trails, and America Walks.
