Social capital and the built environment

The importance of walkable neighbourhoods Leyden seeks to examine whether pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use neighbourhoods encourage enhanced levels of social and community engagement, using Galway as a case study. Results indicate that persons living in walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods have higher levels of social capital and were more likely to know their neighbours, participate politically, trust others, and be socially engaged.
