“We need a supportive environment not artificial bland yards, where no one wants to spend time,” Kristjan Lind, CEO of Bikeep commented on 15-minutes city topic.
When urban environment supports movement, recreation and activities inside the city, the community well-being is significantly enhanced, businesses start popping up, cafes on the streets, bookstores on street corners, food trucks and the communities come together.
Also the environmental impact needs to be addressed. With the majority of co2 emissions coming from the transportation sector, the focus should be set to minimize the harm of every single trip.
Walking and cycling are the most beneficial to us and the environment. We need to support it as Paris did.
