Global Street Design Guide Endorsements

Cities worldwide are using the Global Streets Design Guide to advance safe, healthy, sustainable, and vibrant streets.

Reimagine Your Streets and Endorse the Guide

Created with the input of practitioners from 72 cities in 42 countries, the Global Street Design Guide (GSDG) offers technical details to inform street design that prioritizes pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. The Guide includes real-world examples of street and intersection transformations that improve road safety as well as the overall efficiency of urban streets.

The Global Designing Cities Initiative invites cities, national governments, non-profit groups, and multilateral organizations to endorse this new vision for world-class street design.

What does endorsing the GSDG mean?

Endorsing the GSDG provides a permission slip for practitioners in your organization/city to re-imagine the role of streets in cities and implement people-oriented designs. It communicates a message to your citizens, colleagues, and partners that you are committed to advancing safe, healthy, sustainable, and vibrant streets using evidence-based design approaches.

Who should endorse the GSDG?

Governments (city, state, or national) and organizations (non-profit, multilateral, or other civic bodies) committed to better cities should endorse the Global Street Design Guide. View the map below to see who else has endorsed the guide.

How can my city/organization/country endorse the GSDG?

If you’re interested in endorsing, simply edit the endorsement template letter and send the signed letter to info@gdci.global. The letter should be placed on your organization/city letterhead and signed by the highest official representative of your organization or government agency. Please contact us at info@gdci.global  for more information.
