Viva La Pedestrian Revolution

PRESENTED ON APR 24, 2014
IN MEXICO CITY @ VOL 35

Peatónito leaves home with his wrestler mask and a black cape looking for rude drivers. His goal: to defend -- using peaceful methods -- pedestrians from the traffic chaos of Mexico City. What have we done to get to the point where we cannot walk peacefully around the city? We need a pedestrian revolution. Infrastructure, culture, and law enforcement must be re-thought to make the city more people-centered.

Transport and Urban Planning for People

BY JULIE ANNE GENTER
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, people need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices. Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.
