The Case for Transit
BY DOUGLAS FUNKE
@ VOL 19
ON MAR 14, 2018
"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."
In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region. The 1950's and 1960's saw a decline in public transport and a car-focused lifestyle with pockets of transit isolation. Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.

ON OCT 23, 2015
When working with lots of international clients you get lots of misunderstandings and miscommunications. Sometimes because of the language difference, sometimes because they just work in a very different way or are have different views on things. This often leads to frustrations, hilarious situations and lots of emailing. Sanne Plomp remarks on the fact that for that reason, it's never boring.

BY ERIKA MASHIG
IN NEW WESTMINSTER
In her talk, Erika Mashig explains how the original “parklet” stood in place in a parking stall in San Fransisco for two hours – the maximum term of the lease offered on the meter. When the meter expired, the sod, bench and tree were taken away and the space resumed as a parking stall. She goes on to explain how this grass roots initiative has caught on, and evolved into what is known as a “parklet”- the transformation of parking spaces on the street into places for people to sit, relax, and enjoy the city.

PechaKucha for Haiti Ending Highlight
As the entire PechaKucha team slowly recuperates from this past weekend's amazing Haiti event -- and that means everyone in Tokyo, and everyone who participated in the live PechaKucha WAVE somewhere in the world -- here's a look at how things wound down at the end. Expect lots of coverage here over the next few days, but we did want by share this video highlight of how the event ended, featuring Mark thanking everyone.
