The Scottish Government has just announced £15 million to help create a series of ‘sustainable travel demonstration communities’ across the country.
Why not follow the example of Bogotá in Colombia, and close the streets every Sunday until 2pm for people?
Check out the video for the benefits that this could bring… Sustainable communities, healthy living, promoting walking and cycling, community cohesion – that hits a lot of policy agendas !
To find out more background about what they’re doing in Bogotá and how, take a look at www.streetfilms.org. Back in Europe, Paris has been doing similar things over the last year or so. And to see how similar efforts in the UK are getting on, visit Living Streets.
