Cities alive: towards a walking world

The built environment needs to encourage healthier choices and we need to design physical activity back in to our everyday lives by incentivising and facilitating walking as daily mode of transport. In addition to the host of health benefits, there are many economic benefits for developers, employers and retailers when it comes to walking. It’s the lowest carbon, least polluting, cheapest and most reliable form of transport. It’s a great social leveller and having people walking through urban spaces makes them safer for others and, best of all, it makes people happy. This report, Cities Alive: Towards a walking world, shines a light on walking, which is all too often taken for granted. It investigates the role walkability plays in developing more liveable, sustainable, healthy, safe and attractive cities.
