breathable and walkable streets through urban planning
Walking and cycling should be the first choices for mobility within a city, based on an integrated public transport system. Active modes are not only good for public health, but innately release zero emissions. Walking and cycling are also the natural neighbours of public transport with most journeys involving a walk to and from the nearest stop or station.
There need to be safe and accessible walking and cycling options in cities, which involves careful coordination of land-use and mobility long-term planning. To guarantee the successful implementation of pedestrian zones or cycling areas, all relevant stakeholders, including residents, local businesses, public transport and digital mobility providers, need to be involved from the very beginning of the project.
