The Department of Geography invites you to the Dorn C. McGrath Lecture in Urban Planning and Geography,with guest Peter Newman.

Cities are reducing in car use, reversing their sprawl and becoming more aware of their need to reduce
automobile dependence to enable their economies to work better. In “The End of Automobile Dependence” Peter Newman will trace this historic change over the past decades and in different parts of the world before showing how best practice examples can indicate how we need to proceed.

Peter Newman is the Professor of Sustainability at Curtin University in Perth, Australia. He has written 19 books and over 300 papers on sustainable cities. In 2014 he was awarded an Order of Australia for his many contributions to urban design and sustainable transport. Peter has worked in local government as an elected councilor, in state government as an advisor to three Premiers and in the Australian Government on the Board of Infrastructure Australia.
