Video: Do our cities still work?

Built to accommodate vehicles, certain cities can now learn from other cities around the world to accommodate change and promote a healthy, active, and social community for residents.

Calgary, pay attention here… 😉

As seen on CBC’s The National from January 28, 2015, check out the video with some stellar stats:

To sum up, cities should encourage the use of:

  • alternate forms of transportation (biking, hiking, walking, hopping, crawling, transit, anything other than driving!)
  • compact cities providing sufficient and affordable living spaces IN city centers, discouraging urban sprawl
  • narrow roads and create proper bike/pedestrian paths and tracks

Oh, the possibilities!
