GDCI’s How to Evaluate Street Transformations guide contains basic, ready-to-print checklists, forms, and community engagement boards to support your data collection. You can digitally add basemaps of your site where needed or simply hand-draw it once it has been printed. Refer back to Section B3 for examples of what the forms might look like when completed.

At the end of 2021, Jardim Monte Verde, a community in the outskirts of Recife, Brazil, reclaimed almost 800 square meters of road space for people.

The new space also included vibrant colors and a place for people to gather.
As part of a collaboration between Agenzia Mobilità Ambiente Territorio (AMAT), Bloomberg Associates and the Global Designing Cities Initiative, the City of Milan has developed an innovative public space program named Piazze Aperte or “Open squares.”
