Erin O’Melinn

Erin lives and works towards building a more sustainable city and region and wants more people to have healthier relationships with each other and the planet. She is Executive Director at HUB, providing cycling education and encouragement, and fighting bike lane battles left, right and centre (who knew bikes were so evil?). In her free time, she volunteers with the Vancouver Public Space Network, who have been making their mark through better urban design, art, local food, and engagement in all that and more. She is on the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Biking and Walking – a North American umbrella organization to push forward active transportation. With her Master in Urban Studies, Erin loves geeking out about building massing, dissecting billboard effects, and finding new public gardens around town.
