Why should you own a car when finding a parking space is a nightmare in densely populated cities – walking, biking, public transport and carsharing are sustainable alternatives that relieve congested and polluted cities. And rather than building everything from scratch, retrofitting can make older buildings future-proof. But the change happening right now goes further than just focusing on environmental sustainability. In the face of rising living costs and the scarcity of affordable housing, some are even exploring communal living spaces.
It’s all about change created by people for people. And this includes everyone. Because the city of the future is intersectional – taking into account women’s and underrepresented groups’ perspectives to create safe, comfortable and thriving spaces for all.
