SDG 11 connects to the heart of Pedestrian Space with its mission statement: “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable
Sustainable Development Goal 11 is about “sustainable cities and communities” & is one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015.
Pedestrian Space is focused on issues of walkability & pedestrianization as a key factor in sustainable urban development.
Our interests & project foci (as covered & explored at pedestrianspace.org) span a broad range of themes that connect to these issues including:
•Emissions reductions through increased pedestrianization in cities
•Walkability & access to amenities as a civic right
•Inclusivity in urban design, planning & traffic planning of pedestrian & soft mobility paths & networks
•Importance of walkability for mental health & this benefit as critical for community
•Walkability, pedestrianized zones & local economy
We cover these & more themes through research, literature reviews, interviews & media coverage – also welcoming contributions on these themes from others here at Pedestrian Space.
