Live Launch Event: How to Implement and Evaluate Street Transformations

Update – webinar can be viewed here

May 19, 2022

9:00 am – 10:00 am ET

Join us for a live conversation with three cities to launch our new handbooks: How to Implement Street Transformations and How to Evaluate Street Transformations. These handbooks distill GDCI’s experience implementing and evaluating street transformation projects in cities around the world, and are an important step in changing the decades-long embedded practice of implementing and evaluating street transformations from a car-centric point of view. Through the methodologies highlighted in these resources, cities can redirect their focus from accommodating vehicles to creating streets that put people of all ages and abilities first.

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. This transformation project included creating 11 new, safer crossings, as well as road safety measures such as speed humps, narrow traffic lanes and extended sidewalks. The new space also included vibrant colors and a place for people to gather.
