Poster for the CARSP and ITE Canada joint webinar: Building CapaCITY/É for Sustainable Transportation, with both organizations logos, and images of the speakers on a grey background.

This webinar introduces CapaCITY/É, a six-year research program working with municipal staff and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) across Canada and Australia to understand factors related to the scaling up and scaling out of sustainable transportation projects across different city contexts. CapaCITY/É focuses specifically on two interventions: all ages and abilities (AAA) bike infrastructure and speed management interventions. After a brief overview of the project, the speakers will explore in more detail the third objective, which aims to work toward a novel implementation science framework for sustainable transportation interventions. This framework will support cities’ decision-making on how best to implement sustainable transportation interventions in their local context.

This event is open to both CARSP and ITE Canada members and is free of charge.

Marie-Soleil Cloutier, Ph.D.

M.S. Cloutier is professor at Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique where she is the scientific director of the Pedestrian and Urban Space Laboratory (LAPS). Her expertise in health geography and urban studies is used through research interests on walkability and road risk for the most vulnerable pedestrians (children, seniors) in urban areas and for all road users across various territory. She collaborates with various actors in the public and private sector as well as with researchers in Quebec, Canada and France.

Emily McCullogh, Ph.D.

Emily McCullogh, Ph.D.

Emily is a postdoctoral fellow at York University in the Faculty of Health Science working under the direction of Dr. Alison Macpherson and Dr. Sarah Richmond (Public Health Ontario). Her doctoral work was conducted in the fields of sociology and philosophical ethics and examined care and caring within coach-athlete relationships in youth competitive sport; however, her research scope has expanded to include road safety, injury prevention, and the built environment. Upon completing her PhD she joined a pan-Canadian research team dedicated to reducing road-related injuries and deaths, as well as promoting active transportation. Her ongoing work focuses on accessibility, equity, and the built environment, as well as system-based approaches to safe and sustainable mobility in Canada.
