Reclaiming Streets for People: Digital and Policy Solutions for Slow Streets
As "stay at home" measures have brought cities to a standstill, many cities have adopted temporary open streets or "slow streets" policies to create safe spaces for pedestrians and cyclists. These policies can help facilitate safer road networks for essential workers who rely on biking and walking to commute to work, as well as create more room for social distancing for those who are making essential trips or physical exercise.
This webinar from Populus will explore several key questions, including:
- What are the political and policy decisions that enable “slow streets”?
- How can cities effectively communicate to the general public and key mobility operators, such as delivery services and mapping platforms?
- How might these policies shape long-range transportation planning efforts in a post-COVID era?
This webinar takes place at 19:00 CET on 30 April. You can find out more and register here.
