The Global Street Design Guide and Best Practices from Across the Globe

The new Global Street Design Guide (GSDG) is a timely resource that sets a new global for designing streets and public spaces, while redefining the role of streets in a rapidly urbanizing world. The Guide broadens how to measure the success of urban streets to include access, safety and mobility for all users, environmental quality, economic benefit, public health and overall quality of life. This presentation will introduce the material in the GSDG and highlight some of the best practices and strategies from the global context. It will also showcase examples of transformational projects that have undertaken innovative approaches to encourage streets that prioritize sustainable mobility choices and put people first.
