Change Streets,
Change The World.


Supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies and launched in 2014, the Global Designing Cities Initiative focuses on the critical role of streets within urban environments in cities around the world. The GDCI is committed to raising the state of the practice for street design and transportation by building a common vision, sharing data, peer-to-peer exchanges and regular communication among international cities. GDCI believes that by working together, cities can save time and money, share lessons learned, scale up best practice implementation and more effectively achieve their policy goals and objectives.


This series of short films explores street conditions in various cities to provide a better sense of space, speed, and sensorial experience of various streets contexts. Check out our Global Map with the embedded web links to view more videos! We would like to encourage you to make your own movies about the streets in your city and share them with all of us on the Global Expert Network.
