8-80 Produce new Walkable Cities resources

November 2, 2015

The Walkability chapter of the Doable City Reader by 8-80 cities in Toronto shows how to measure the walkability of your city and shows how you can up the walkability of your neighbourhoods. The promised results? Better results for health, economy, environment, and social connectivity in your community.

 

The Doable City Reader was developed out of the June 2014 Chicago Doable City Forum, which was funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and brought together two hundred civic innovators from around North America. Inside, you’ll find stories, examples and case studies of small actions that can scale up to make our cities happier, healthier and more prosperous places. Each chapter contains resources and ideas to bring these solutions to your communities.

 

The healthiest, wealthiest, most sustainable and vibrant communities in cities around the world are unique in many ways. But there is one factor above all others that these communities have in common: they are, nearly without fail, highly walkable places. By creating places that are built for walking, we flick a switch that unlocks the best our cities can offer us and we create communities that are healthier and richer in every way.
