Principles towards a walking-friendly and human city

It is time to improve the situation and the status of the pedestrians, in an era where motor traffic in the cities is expanding causing a negative impact on the quality of city life. The goal should be to form a city policy dedicated to providing more living space and prioritising the pedestrian. Five major principles (SPACE) are revealed: Safety and security, Proximity, Accessibility and adaptation to the children, the elderly and the disabled, Comfort and convenience, Esthetic environment. Steps and examples are given to create a walking-friendly, healthy and sustainable city.
