School Streets to Shape Child Friendly Cities

School Street initiatives are one of many strategies that can help our cities to become more inclusive, sensitive and sustainable in a moment where tangible action is of utmost importance.

To understand the benefits of School Streets, BYCS developed a brief, in partnership with the Clean Cities Campaign, exploring 6 key benefits that School Streets provide, and providing 6 key considerations for their successful implementation. The interviews in this issue highlight the voices of key stakeholders working to implementing more child friendly streets and routes to school, with a focus on active mobility as a source of wellbeing. They bring forward important narratives to accompany the statistics highlighted in our report.
