Natalie Ethier-urban geographer and advocate for pedestrian-scale development
An urban geographer and advocate for pedestrian-scale development, Natalie Ethier is curious about the connections between urban form, perception and experience of place, and how these influence movement through cities. She graduated from the Masters in Environmental Studies program at York University with a specialization in public space and active transportation. Natalie has a keen interest in psychogeography and memory maps and is the founder of Pedestrian City.
Inspired by the work of Michel De Certeau, Guy Debord and the Situationist International, Jane Jacobs, and Jan Gehl, Pedestrian City brings together individual experiences of walking in a city.
