Change for Good Roads is a limited-term podcast that brings together some of the best thinkers in Canada to discuss, what are “Good Roads”? How do we change how we move in our cities to benefit community, environment, sustainability, health and equity?

Change for Good Roads is hosted by Pamela Fuselli, President and CEO of Parachute. She is joined in each episode by a leading thinker from a multitude of disciplines – sustainable cities, equity, accessibility, physical activity, mobility and road safety – to explore the importance of rethinking our urban environments and the steps we need to take to make good roads for all.

This podcast is made possible through the generous support of our road safety partner, Desjardins Insurance, and can be found anywhere you listen to podcasts, such as Apple or Spotify. Make sure to use the hashtag #ChangeforGoodRoads when you share the podcast with others on social media. 

We launch Tuesday, March 14, 2023 and release new episodes on a monthly basis, on the second Tuesday of the month, for the rest of 2023.
