How to Successfully Work with Government from a Permaculture Perspective

Q&A and Discussion with:
Tom Radulovich, Executive Director Livable City

Tom joined Transportation for a Livable City as executive director in June 2004. He has been an urban environmental activist since attending college at UC Berkeley, advocating for urban environmental restoration, better public transport, and the greening and revitalization of public streetscapes and open spaces. He played an important role in voter initiatives to create the Octavia Boulevard and to create a “Grand Central Station” at San Francisco’s Transbay Terminal that connects regional and intercity rail and bus lines.

He has served as an elected director of the Bay Area Rapid Transit District since 1996, where he has advocated for reinvestment and renovation of the BART system, and improving BART practices in the areas of sustainability, accessibility, customer service, architecture and urban design, and the creation of transit villages at BART stations.

We will be discussing with Tom how he, for example, turned radical ideas like shutting down major streets to automobile traffic for a day into actual programs of the city – The Sunday Streets and getting his perspective on the best ways to approach government and work effectively to manifest our visions for placemaking. This will be an interactive discussion.

On the first Wed of each month, the San Francisco Permaculture Guild will meet at the Matter of Trust Eco-Center in the Mission (located at 3338 17th Street, between Valencia and Mission).

People will arrive and network from 6:30-7pm, and the meeting goes from 7-9pm. You are invited to bring a potluck dish to share.
