A fresh and innovative perspective on urban issues and creating sustainable cities

This book tells the story of an idea that spread from city to city, describing a new way of looking at living that addresses many of the most intractable challenges of our time. Hundreds of mayors worldwide have already embraced the concept as a way to help recover from the pandemic, and the idea continues to gain speed. You’ll learn why more and more cities are planning to make cars far less necessary for contemporary city-dwellers and how they’re planning to achieve that goal. You’ll also find:

  • Strategies for cities to recover and adapt to benefit residents, saving them precious time.
  • Techniques to change the habits of automobile-dependent city residents and maximize social benefits of living in a human-centric city.
  • Scientifically developed, research-backed solutions for enduring urban issues and problems.
