A sustainable transformation needs to reduce car dependency. Worldwide there is a growing awareness about the positive effects of car-free urban settings on e.g. reduction of air pollution, freeing space for e.g. green structures and spaces for play. Researcher Nina Vogel tells us about this experiment 11 March.
The project mainly aims to develop new knowledge about how car-free urban areas (here so-called summer streets) have been developed and implemented and how this is experienced by users in terms of environmental opportunities and obstacles to human mobility.
