Rethinking our streets

Fri, 04/11/2022 - 13:08
Author

Use these resources as talking tools to promote and commit to sustainable streets. Streets facilitate movement, provide access to various facilities and also act as great public spaces - but only if they are designed for it. The recent increase in private motor vehicles and the decrease in the usage of public transportation have made our streets dangerous for large swathes of the public. These resources will help people and policy makers re-imagine our streetscape.
